On Friday 11th May, Dr Dan was pleased to visit local business, C & K Meats to congratulate them on their recent success in being awarded with the prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise for International Trade.
A regular visitor to the company, Dr Dan enjoyed catching up once more with owners Chris and Kevin Burrows, who started the company in 1994 and now employ over 100 people at the site in Eye, Suffolk.
Dr Dan learned how C & K Meats identified an opportunity to promote British meat to discerning markets overseas and this has seen their business grow dramatically. The company started exporting its high-end products around three years ago and they now export as far afield as Singapore, Dubai, Oman, Uganda and the Philippines, as well as to closer afield in Europe.
Dr Dan was delighted to congratulate Chris and Kevin and wished them every success with their expanding enterprise.
