Smylies is thrilled to have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category for the second time. The Queen’s Awards are given to exceptional UK businesses and since their inception almost 7,000 companies have received the honour.
Royal recognition for Smylies
Smylies export up to 20,000 products to countries all over the world, specialising in the export of British food and drink products from brands like Bird’s Eye, Muller, PG Tips and Cadbury. From our state of the art facility in Bromborough and through our effective network we ensure all shipments reach their destination in perfect condition.
Chris Smylie, Managing Director of Smylies says: “We’re delighted to have won for a second time. The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is the most prestigious award for UK businesses and is globally recognised as a standard of excellence.
“We work hard to provide the best service and product range for our customers both in the UK and overseas. Over the years, we’ve developed an understanding of the sector that sets us apart from our competitors. This award is testament to the skills and dedication of everyone at Smylies.”
Chris will be joined by International Business Manager, Alex Smylie, as they receive the award at Buckingham Palace on the 28th of June. The award will be presented by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.
Smylies continues to grow, recently investing in its first branded product, The King’s Deli crisps. Initially founded to provide expats in Dubai with their favourite food and drink from home, Smylies has grown to offer a wide range of export and logistics services for some of the world’s leading brands.
Chris added: “Smylies has the potential to become the UK’s leading export management company and we have a dynamic team to make this a reality. We’re passionate about providing full export solutions for suppliers and customers. Our one-stop-shop approach offers the complete package, making it easier for British brands to grow their presence overseas and for our customers to make more money from the sale of British goods.”
