By E247

Floward, the go-to online flowers and gifts delivery destination in MENA and UK, won a silver Stevie® Award in the Innovative Achievement in Growth category in the fourth annual Middle East & North Africa Stevie Awards sponsored by the Ras Al Khaimah Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

With more than 800 nominations from organizations across the Middle East and North Africa, Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 150 executives around the world acting as judges on six juries. The gala event took place on March 18 at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates to celebrate the winners.

Since its establishment, Floward has experienced exponential growth where it went from operating in only one country to almost 40 cities across nine countries in the MENA region and the UK. In addition to that, the company has grown more than ten times its size in the past two years and recruited more than 600 talented employees in 2022 bringing the total number of its team members to over 1200. The company has recently raised USD156 million in its Series C Pre-IPO investment round where it plans to utilize the funds to further enhance its operations upholding its title as an innovative achiever in growth.

Floward Chairman & CEO, Mr. Abdulaziz B. Al Loughani said:  "We are honoured to receive the Stevie Award, the sole awards program in the MENA region that acknowledges workplace innovation. As a company that values innovation at its core, we are constantly pushing ourselves to create new and thoughtful solutions for our clients."
