Double recognition

We are celebrating the recognition of our significant export growth after being awarded a duo of accolades in the Northern Powerhouse Export Awards. We are pleased to say that we won Export Team of the Year and Scale Up Exporter of the Year and were also a finalist in the Small Exporter of the Year category.

A global presence

We believe we deserve our awards since we have grown our export business to over 60 per cent of revenue, in particular meeting demand from household name retailers and manufacturers. We are constantly growing our customer base into new territories and are already seeing massive growth in Europe and the lucrative Middle East.

Our global presence is growing in part due to a programme of PR and marketing, including showcasing at international exhibitions and an increased social media presence in order to raise awareness and increase prospect enquiries. We expect to double our sales in five years by accessing new and existing international markets, supported by in-house R&D expertise that enable us to work hand in hand with brands across the globe to develop new, innovative products that meet market demand.

A team effort

A delighted Managing Director EMEA and APAC, Graham Kingston commented: “This is very well-deserved recognition for every member of the Pecan Deluxe Candy team who together have worked extremely hard over the last few years to maximise our sales not just in the UK but across Europe, the Middle and Far East and more recently APAC. Our reputation for innovation and the highest quality ingredients and customer service speaks volumes in any language and I’d like to congratulate all our colleagues for a fantastic job well done.”
