International market leader in the bakery sector, St Pierre Groupe, has been recognised with two prestigious awards at the 2019 Insider’s North West International Trade Awards in Manchester (5 December). The Manchester-based company has been awarded the International Company of the Year (£50m + turnover) for the North West region, whilst its founder, Paul Baker, won the award for International Ambassador. Judges said that Paul is a true international ambassador and his charisma and image is clearly a huge part of his brand’s success. The awards celebrate the best examples of excellence and innovation in international trade.
St Pierre Groupe founder, Paul Baker, comments: “It is a phenomenal achievement for the St Pierre Groupe team to win not one but two awards at the North West International Trade Awards – in the same week that we received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise. It’s the team – both here in Manchester and in America that have made this happen. We work together seamlessly, supporting and driving new thinking, which combined with a bold growth ambition, exciting robust brands and an agile business approach allows our business to succeed so significantly both at home and abroad.”
Earlier this month (3 December), St Pierre Groupe also received the Queen’s Award for enterprise from the Vice Lord-Lieutenant at the company’s new offices in Didsbury. 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.
