This Somerset company can trace its history back to 1892, when founder Bob Martin invented a conditioning powder for dogs. The group now makes food, grooming and health products for household pets. Still owned by the Martin family, it has offices in Europe and South Africa, helping international sales to hit £9.2m in 2015. It bought Nestlé’s Purina petcare business in Europe for an undisclosed sum in 2016.
