International Track 200

Graham Baker set up Butcher’s Pet Care in 1983 to use by-products from the family’s butchery business. Today, from its new £38m factory in Northamptonshire – which, it claims, can produce more than 1,000 cans of pet food a minute – the company exports to Italy and the Benelux countries. The company recently set up a sales and marketing team in Poland to target eastern Europe. International sales have increased 51% a year from £1.8m in 2009 to £4.1m in 2011, and further overseas growth is expected.
