Leading natural pet supplement manufacturer Lintbells has been honoured with the first ever King’s Award for Enterprise for its work in international trade.   

It is the third time the company has received such a prestigious royal accolade, having previously earned The Queen’s Award for Enterprise Innovation in 2016 and The Queen’s Award for Enterprise Innovation: International Trade in 2018.

The new King’s Award for Enterprise reflects the continued growth of Lintbells and expansion in international markets and significant launch into the US.

Following the risks from Brexit , Lintbells made a strategic choice to expand internationally, most notably increasing its presence in the US Market. Part of this expansion included launching new products, sales channels, and acquiring a new local HQ, as well as recruiting talent to the company. Lintbells also continued its expansion across other international markets with the introduction of skin, digestive and calming ranges, alongside its core joint supplement, YuMOVE.

Established in the UK and based in Weston, Hertfordshire, in 2006, Lintbells has seen rapid continued growth as part of their international expansion; quintupling their business outside of the UK over the past 5 years (2018-2022).

Lintbells now exports high-quality products for pets in more than 20 countries worldwide. 

Fiona Hope, Lintbells CEO, said: “The whole team at Lintbells is delighted that our international growth has been recognised by such a prestigious award. 

We are very proud of the difference that our scientific supplements make to the quality of life of companion animals and have worked hard to extend our global reach.  

To receive the first Enterprise Award from His Majesty King Charles III, makes this is a very special moment in Lintbells’ history.” 

Lintbells has always had one driving mission; to help pets across the world live their most active life, for life. The ethos of this mission is prevalent in all aspects of how the company approaches the business – from working with sustainable farms off the coast of New Zealand to source the very best ingredients - to its charitable work and partnerships that support pets across the UK and the US.

The King’s Awards for Enterprise was previously known as The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, and the new name reflects His Majesty The King’s desire to continue the legacy of HM Queen Elizabeth II’s by recognising outstanding UK businesses.

The Award programme, now in its 57th year, is the most prestigious business award in the country and is internationally recognised. The 2023 Awardees will be announced on Friday 21 April this year, marking Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday, and on 6 May from 2024, the anniversary of The King’s coronation.
