National triumph for gummy specialist at 10th National Entrepreneurs’ Awards

A vitamin gummy manufacturer has received major recognition after triumphing at the National Entrepreneur Awards.

UK Gummy Company, based in Swansea (with state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Spain) was announced as the winner of the ‘Most Impressive Business Growth’ award in front of a packed audience of hundreds of fellow entrepreneurs at the awards ceremony.

The event, held at the ICC in Birmingham, is the highlight of the annual ‘Getting and Keeping Customers Convention’ run by the business growth specialists Entrepreneurs Circle and attracts over 1,000 visitors every year.

Set up in 2019, UK Gummy Company supplies gummies for the Health, Sports, Beauty, Senior Citizens and Childrens’ sectors for a range of major customers across the globe, with standard and bespoke formulations available.

Working to the highest standards, their facilities and systems are regularly audited to ensure compliance and the company holds BRC and IFS certificates.

Founder Tom Walsh, who prior to starting the business enjoyed a successful career in supply chain management, working for blue-chip organisations such as Revlon, Gillette, Alberto Culver, The Body Shop and LF Beauty said: “Having worked on ‘both sides’ of being a buyer and seller I understand the importance and significance of building solid business relationships to have mutual success and that philosophy has served us well as we have continued to expand our offering and with it, our market share.

“We offer a fully finished product development service, from concept of product to the customer’s market launch, are transparent and competitive with our pricing and offer a rapid lead time – some 50% quicker than China – which has been a major factor in our growth.

“This award is testimony to the high standards that we set ourselves as a company from day one. The growth of the business comes down to a continuous investment both in terms of time and financial resources put back into the business but with one key thing at the core…the customer.”

UK Gummy Company’s triumph came alongside recognition for entrepreneurs in seven other categories, as business owners from across the UK came together to celebrate their achievements and to be recognised for their hard work and dedication.

Nigel Botterill, founder of Entrepreneurs Circle and the creator of 10 different £1m+ businesses himself, said: “As entrepreneurs we are always focused on ‘what’s next’. We are notoriously bad at recognising and celebrating what we have achieved and how far we have come, and I am delighted for Tom and all the winners and finalists here with us tonight.

“The great work they do often goes unnoticed, which is why, ten years ago, we created the National Entrepreneur Awards. We are on a mission to recognise and reward business owners and businesses like UK Gummy Company that have achieved great things over this last year.

“We want to shine a spotlight on the amazing things entrepreneurs all over the UK are doing to build their businesses, put something back into their local communities and give the country’s economy a much-needed shot in the arm.”
