Awards & Credentials

We're proud to have received over 80 awards in the last 20 years at Ramsden International.

Queen’s Awards

We’re proud to have received The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade in 2004, 2009 and 2012. We were recognised for our continued growth and dedication to exporting British brands worldwide.

It is rare for a company to be granted this significant award once, however, Ramsden International has now received this accolade three times. The values set when winning these awards created the right path for us to continue with our success in exporting. We pride ourselves on being the industry experts in what we do, and we are continually pioneering a better way for international businesses to buy British groceries.

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is the UK’s most prestigious award for business success and is highly recognised by our customers around the world.

The Grocer Gold Awards

On three occasions our exporting achievements have been recognised by UK industry publication The Grocer, including 2018, when we were awarded the highly coveted Grocer Gold Award for Exporter of The Year. This is a nationally recognised competition judged by a panel of industry experts.

The Grocer want to break the mould, by creating a different kind of awards scheme; one that makes a truly positive statement about the magnificent work being done by companies in this fast-moving industry. With that in mind, the awards are focused on key business areas such as innovation and customer satisfaction - areas which we excel in.
