Pet Brands is a Finalist in the SME of the Year (21-50 employees) category in the Examiner Business Awards

Pet accessories and treats company, Pet Brands, has been chosen as a finalist in the Examiner Business Awards in the ‘SME of the Year (21-50 employees)’ category. The company has previously won the ‘International Business of the Year’ category award in 2016 and was a finalist in 2017 for the Innovation award.


The overall winners in each category will be announced on 1st November in Huddersfield.


PetBrands Director, Ravi Sharma, says he and his team are delighted to be finalists, “The feedback we have had is that this has been an outstanding year for entries, making the judges’ decisions extremely difficult and we know from our previous involvement with the awards that the calibre of entries is very high. We’re therefore very pleased that our achievements have been recognised.”


Explaining why he thinks Pet Brands is through to the next round of judging, Ravi says the company has had some remarkable successes this year, “We’ve extended our export business into new markets in South Korea, Italy and Sweden, bringing the total number of countries we export to up to 58. Our market share in established territories such as Australia, Germany and Spain has also grown through 2017-18. In the UK, we’ve made a lot of progress in the business, our Foaber range is performing strongly and we have new, exciting products in the pipeline.”


Pet Brands is one of the UK’s top designers and manufacturers of accessories and treats for pets and wild birds and aims to be the number one preferred partner for pet trade businesses worldwide.
