Manchester-based St Pierre Groupe has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade yesterday.

The food manufacturer was presented the award this week (3 December) by the Vice Lord-Lieutenant at its new offices in Didsbury.

St Pierre Groupe’s brand portfolio includes St Pierre, Baker Street and Paul Hollywood. Its export range encompasses 77 products, listed in more than 35,000 stores worldwide.

“Winning the Queen’s Award is a huge achievement for us. It follows a successful few years for our business that includes rebranding from Carrs Foods earlier this year and being well on our way to doubling our turnover in the next three years to reach £150m by 2022,” said Jeremy Gilboy, founder of St Pierre Group.

“Our business has grown exponentially in the past 12 months and as well as receiving the prestigious award, we have also moved to new, larger offices to continue our ambitious expansion plans.”

St Pierre Groupe supplies European bakery products to the UK, Ireland and worldwide export markets through multiple, convenience and wholesale channels.

The company has also secured a top 10 place in The Sunday Times International Track 200 for the third consecutive year.
