    Millbrook Dairy wins King’s Awards for Enterprise

    Kevin Beer (L) and David Evans

    Devon-based Millbrook Dairy has been recognised with a King’s Awards for Enterprise, the UK’s highest business accolade.

    The company has won the award in the International Trade category for its outstanding short-term growth in overseas sales, which have grown by 109 per cent in the last three years.

    The Awards recognises Millbrook Dairy’s exceptional performance in collaborating with partners around the world to buy and sell dairy products. The company specialises in procuring and selling bulk and packaged cheese and butter across international markets with its main source of dairy products stemming from the UK and Ireland.

    The company now operates across Europe, the Middle East, North America, and Asia-Pacific. As a start up that was established in 2019, all current markets were entered in the last three years and Millbrook Dairy is now the UK’s fastest-growing trader and exporter of bulk cheese into world markets.

    Additional to its bulk cheese and butter business, Millbrook Dairy has developed its own premium brand, 1057 Extra Mature Scottish Cheddar, which is sold in the US, Canada, and Australia.

    Co-founders Kevin Beer and David Evans said that the extraordinary teamwork, deep-rooted relationships, and values that are shared across the whole team within the business have been a major contributor to its success.

    “We are proud and humbled to have been recognised in The King’s Awards for Enterprise: International Trade 2024,” they said.

    “When we started on our journey in 2019, we never thought the business would grow in the way it has and especially during the turbulent trading periods that have been in place.  For us, winning a King’s Award for Enterprise and being recognised by the highest business awards in the land is a remarkable achievement and a very big honour.”

    The King’s Awards for Enterprise, previously known as The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, were renamed last year to reflect His Majesty The King’s desire to continue the legacy of Queen Elizabeth II’s by recognising outstanding UK businesses. The Awards celebrate the success of exciting and innovative businesses which are leading the way with pioneering products or services, delivering impressive social mobility programmes, or showing their commitment to excellent sustainable development practices.

    The Award programme, now in its 58th year, is the most prestigious business award in the country, with successful businesses able to use the esteemed King’s Awards Emblem for the next five years.
