This Cheshire-based dairy business — which started in 1985 with just three goats — was one of the first companies to gain permission to export liquid goats’ milk into China, and now has a base in Hong Kong. Its exports have benefited from increasingly westernised diets in the Far East and the strong reputation of British foods abroad. In 2008 the founders handed over the reins to managing director Ed Salt, 37. Overseas sales of Delamere Dairy’s cow and goat products reached £5m last year.
