Treatt plc – 2017
Treatt plc, a world-leading independent ingredients manufacturer and solutions provider to the global flavour, fragrance and consumer goods markets, won the 2017 Business of the Year award.
It beat a glittering array of life science and hi-tech companies to the crown.
Kevin Calder of lead sponsor Mills & Reeve told executive guests at the Queens’ College event: “Treatt combines a strong sense of local pride with a global outlook, selling its products internationally and creating a substantial business in the US and emerging new markets such as China.
“Committed to continuous improvement, Treatt has deep established roots and a clear strategic path that drives the business forward. Its people are creative, technically excellent and dedicated, enabling it to develop and supply a range of ready-made or bespoke systems to suite the most adventurous needs.
“We loved the corporate culture and the trade figures were impressive: Exports comprise 91 per cent of sales; 46 per cent to The Americas, 23 per cent to Europe, and 22 per cent to the Rest of the World.
“Treatt is also working on innovation for a major drinks manufacturer that could go a long way to helping the global fight against obesity caused by the amount of sugar in some products.”
