GRACE COLE RECEIVES
THE QUEENS AWARD FOR
We are delighted to announce we have been honoured to be bestowed the Queens top award for Enterprise - the UK's highest accolade for business success, for international trade and striving to onshore the majority of our manufacturing.
Since our beginning in 2008, we have been committed to bringing manufacturing back to Britain, a hard task within the beauty industry when many of the ingredients and supplies are difficult to source domestically. We now manufacture over 50% of our products in the UK, as well as distributing our products to over 80 countries worldwide.
The Queen's Award celebrates and acknowledges excellence in UK business. The winners have achieved outstanding results in their respective fields of innovation, international trade and sustainable development. All winners attended a special reception to acknowledge their success at Buckingham Palace.
Tracy Mort, Managing Director comments, "We are absolutely delighted to have received the Queen's Award. We have always strived to support the UK economy by creating jobs within our supply chain and produce products that can add value to the UK's export industry. Sometimes this has felt like a huge undertaking and a massive investment. However we knew in the long term it would not only expand our business, but it would secure large contracts for UK based companies. We will continue to bring more of our manufacturing back to the UK, creating jobs on a national level as well as boosting the UK economy through international trade."
