The animal nutrition company, Devenish, has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in recognition of the growth and commercial success of its international division.
Devenish Nutrition International was set up in 2012 to offer vitamin and mineral premix, neonatal feeds and nutritional solutions to the feed and food industry. The company now trades in over 25 countries worldwide.
“It is a great honour to be recognised through this prestigious award, and I would like to applaud the efforts of our international team and the group as a whole, all of whom have contributed to the growth of our export business,” said the group’s executive chairman, Owen Brennan.
“When we launched our international division we set out to grow the business organically year on year by 75%, and we are very pleased with our progress.”
Mr Brennan said the group, which services the pig, poultry, ruminant, companion animal and equine sectors, spends over £30 million a year on innovation and that this has proved to be a solid foundation for business growth, both locally and internationally.
