The National Business Awards invites Scottish organisations to enter
Having become a finalist in the prestigious National Business Awards programme, Jenier Teas has continued to grow at home and internationally.
Having launched in October 2009 via an e-commerce website, Jenier now comprises over 180 different high quality loose teas, pyramid tea bags, tea wares and accessories. The range and the quality of the products differentiate the business from its competitors.
Since starting up four years ago, Jenier has expanded rapidly, building a solid customer base in the UK and internationally. As a result Jenier has concentrated on product development and maximising opportunities within the food and drinks trade sector, in particular food and drinks distributors, high quality restaurants, tea shops and exclusive retail chains. Jenier is seeing strong sales with food and drink distributors in Russia and their solid ecommerce offering allows them to also trade in Finland, Norway, the Netherlands, Romania, Turkey, Australia, South Africa, the Czech Republic, South Korea China, Kenya and India.
Anita Clark, founder of Jenier Teas said: “Since becoming a finalist in the National Business Awards programme, Jenier has continued to experience growth at home and internationally. The quality of our products and the extensive range, coupled with the simple ecommerce offering has allowed sales to gain momentum. Our strategy initially was to build the brand in the UK, but we’re now constantly evolving that strategy to encompass international markets.”
Organisations from all regions and sectors across the UK are invited to enter the National Business Awards to gain recognition for their achievements on a national level. Recognising enterprise excellence, innovation and ethics, the thirteenth annual National Business Awards will celebrate a range of achievements through accolades including the Inflexion International Growth Business of the Year, the ICAEW Sustainable Business Award, the Smith & Williamson Entrepreneur of the Year and the QBE FTSE 100 Business of the Year.
“Entering the National Business Awards meant we were able to step back and look at our business model in detail, reflecting, but also thinking about the future. The judging process and benchmark report helped with this process and the event itself allowed us to celebrate with peers, but also network with people from larger and more established organisations. It’s a great experience and I would recommend it to other businesses in Scotland.” added Anita Clark.
