Nutraceutical provider VetPlus has won the “Excellence in International Trade” award at a ceremony in Salford.
Run by Insider Media, the annual event is designed to recognise companies in the north-west of England deemed to have taken “impressive strides overseas”.
Family owned, Lancashire-based VetPlus, which has subsidiaries in Barcelona, Spain, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Germany and Atlanta, Georgia and supplies products to 34 countries worldwide, won the award from a strong field of eight other contending companies.
Neil Pullar, divisional director for VetPlus, said: “The award is recognition for the hard work the entire team has done, not only in 2016, but over many years.
“In speaking to the judges they were particularly impressed by our consistent approach in all countries, and areas of the business worldwide. Despite having had great success to date, we remain absolutely committed to build a privately held business with a clear plan for the next 25 years.”
It has been an extremely exciting year for VetPlus being continuously recognised for its international activity. The company also won the Red Rose Award for International Achievement in March, among a diverse range of other awards this year.
