Manchester-based international market leader in the bakery sector St Pierre Groupe was honoured with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade on 3 December, in recognition of the company’s meteoric global growth.
Supplying European bakery products into the UK, Ireland and worldwide export markets via the multiple, convenience and wholesale channels, the company’s brand portfolio includes St Pierre, Baker Street and Paul Hollywood. Its export range encompasses 77 products listed in over 35,000 stores worldwide.
Receiving the award from the Vice Lord-Lieutenant at the company’s new offices in Didsbury, St Pierre Groupe founder, Jeremy Gilboy, comments: “Winning the Queen’s Award is a huge achievement for us. It follows a successful few years for our business that includes rebranding from Carrs Foods earlier this year and being well on our way to doubling our turnover in the next three years to reach £150m by 2022.
“Our business has grown exponentially in the past twelve months and, as well as receiving this prestigious award, we have also moved to new, larger offices to continue our ambitious expansion plans.”
Now in its 53rd year, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are among the most prestigious business awards in the country, with winners able to use the Queen’s Award emblem for the next five years. St Pierre Groupe has also secured a top ten place in The Sunday Times International Track 200 for the third consecutive year.
