Fast Track 100

Chilly’s Bottles shut its warehouse for weeks during the spring to prioritise staff safety, and donated product worth £250,000 to NHS front-line workers in June. James Butterfield, 31, came up with the idea for a reusable bottle in 2010, and was joined by Tim Bouscarle, 32, in founding the London company. The bottles are made from stainless steel and house a double-walled vacuum chamber to create thermal insulation. Sales rose to £44.1m in the year to July, helped by a widening range including reusable coffee cups and food pots.
