The ultimate achievement for pet food brand Lily's Kitchen

Lily’s Kitchen has today been bestowed with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, in recognition of the company's dedication to transforming the pet food industry and improving the quality of pets' lives.

Just one of a select group of UK businesses unveiled to be honoured by Her Majesty The Queen in her prestigious annual awards, announced today her 90th birthday, Lily’s Kitchen is unique as the first-ever pet food brand and one of just a handful of consumer food companies to win a Queen’s Award in the scheme’s 50-year history.

Lily’s Kitchen was founded in 2008 by entrepreneur and business woman Henrietta Morrison, in response to her pet Border Terrier Lily’s itchy skin condition as a result of eating low quality, highly processed food.

After trialling home-cooked food for Lily in her kitchen and seeing the immediate health benefits these recipes gave her own dog, she started making the recipes on a larger scale and went on to create the world’s first natural, meal-free and grain-free food for pets for the mainstream market.

Henrietta spent two years working with a range of experts to develop a range of natural foods for cats and dogs. The brand is now a successful, socially and environmentally responsibleBritish business.

With an army of fans who love her freshly prepared and innovative recipes that are challenging the way pet food is produced and sold, pioneering recipes include Breakfast Crunch doggy granola, Super-Food Snack Bars for Dogs, Wild Campfire Stew, a Dinner For Dogs cook book and in celebration of the Queen’s 90th year, the company have even launched a limited edition Coronation Chicken recipe.

The products contain 100% freshly prepared meat, fruit and vegetables, with no unnecessary additives or flavours, and are completely free of rendered meat, animal or vegetable derivatives, fillers or fibrous leftovers.  Giving customers a new way to reappraise the way their cats and dogs eat, and delivering better food at a fair price, she has spearheaded a revolution in pet health and happiness.

Henrietta Morrison, said “The Queen’s Award is the ultimate accolade and to win particularly for innovation is humbling and a huge recognition of the way Lily’s Kitchen is changing the face of our industry, it is also a fantastic reflection on the exceptional team I work with and our producers who work hard to our exacting standards.

"We have had an uncompromising approach to the pet food we produce and I am delighted we have been chosen, it is a significant moment for entrepreneurial British business – competing with the large corporates.”
