A business owner from Glyn Ceiriog has been named as one of the UK’s most inspirational and dynamic female entrepreneurs.

Kerry Mackay founded ScrubbiesUK, a manufacturer of home-compostable cleaning pads, in 2019.

To celebrate her business achievements Kerry is being profiled alongside 100 female entrepreneurs from across the country, as part of a campaign by f:Entrepreneuer to celebrate the multi-achievements of women running businesses in the UK today.

Now in its fifth year, the growing campaign attracted a record number of applications for this year’s ‘#ialso100’ line-up.

Delivered by Small Business Britain – the leading champion of small businesses in the UK – f:Entrepreneur was established in 2017 to highlight the stories of amazing female business owners and help provide inspiration and role models across the wider small business community.

The f:Entrepreneur ‘#ialso100’ line-up particularly sets out to showcase trailblazing female founders who lead businesses alongside a roster of other responsibilities, such as volunteering, mentoring and community support. Many of the businesses featured in this year’s campaign also demonstrate a huge commitment to the environment by championing sustainability.

Kerry was also recognised  for winning three national business awards in 2021 including Product of The Year at the National Environmental Awards and using Scrubbies as a means to highlight both environmental and social issues having started her eco business whilst in food-bank poverty.

From quantum computer engineers, and vegan fruit farmers, to sustainability advocates and inclusive fashion designers, this year’s campaign celebrates inspiring and resilient female entrepreneurs that have flourished despite the challenges of the past years, with many still growing or starting new ventures.

On being featured in the #ialso100 lineup, Kerry Mackay said: “It’s an incredible honour to be recognised alongside such inspiring female entrepreneurs.

“Hard work and sheer determination really do pay off, even if your only dream is to escape poverty.”

Both f:Entrepreneur and Small Business Britain were founded by Michelle Ovens CBE, who is also the director of Small Business Saturday UK.

“Congratulations to Kerry Mackay at ScrubbiesUK, and all of the brilliant female entrepreneurs featured in this year’s #ialso100,” said Michelle Ovens.

“It is so vital that we recognise and celebrate the phenomenal contribution that women running businesses are making across the UK, and the far-reaching, positive impact they are having, not just on the economy, but on wider communities too.

“The last few years have been hugely challenging for small businesses, yet despite this female entrepreneurship continues to grow and flourish in the UK, and is very much at the heart of the UK’s recovery.”
