Elmgrove Foods Limited has been crowned with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise at a Buckingham Palace reception.

The company’s managing director Stuart Dobson received the award, which is highly regarded and the UK’s most prestigious award for business performance.

“Elmgrove were National Champions in The European Business Awards in 2012; on the back of this a work colleague suggested that we should enter the Queen’s Awards,” said Dobson.

He claimed there were a few reasons as to why the company was selected for the award.

“In recognition of creating and exporting innovative beef, lamb and pork offal products to global customers. We help protect the environment as these products were initially incinerated or put into landfill, causing damage to the environment. This award recognises substantial growth in overseas earnings and commercial success at outstanding levels,” said Dobson.

Of receiving the award and what it will mean for his business in the future, Dobson said: “The Queen’s Awards are widely recognised as the showcase for the UK’s most dynamic companies, The Award is only given for the highest levels of excellence demonstrated in each category. Achieving this award will provide our customers with confidence that they are working with a credible company.”

He also explained that the company is working towards Chinese approval to export directly into the country and that the award would help build the Chinese authorities’ confidence in the products.
