Congratulations to Nairn’s, announced recently as a recipient of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade in 2022.

Renowned for being one of the highest official UK awards for British businesses, The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise recognise companies who excel in international trade, innovation, sustainable development or promoting opportunity.

Nairn’s exports to more than 35 markets, including the Republic of Ireland, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Portugal, China, the Middle East, Cyprus and the Netherlands, and this global expansion has been a key driver of its growth. With an objective to grow export business at a significantly faster rate than domestic sales – Nairn’s has consistently grown international sales reaching over £5m this year.

Nairn’s epitomises many of the characteristics that define successful modern brands. Authenticity – built from a long strong heritage based on provenance and real people. Expertise – they have a core, the simple goodness of oats that drives what they do. A relentless energy (it must be the oats!) –driving brand building, innovation and continuous improvement. What we love about Nairn’s is that, rather than rest on its laurels, it has turned into a modern, healthy, wellness-led food brand. Exporting the brand is just another demonstration of the company’s ambition and success, with the award being an acknowledgement of its quality.

It is hard not to love brands like Nairn’s.
