Originally a stall in London’s Smithfield meat market, this firm now imports, processes and exports meat around the world. Its customers range from small shops to large chains such as Aldi and Lidl, with central Europe and Scandinavia its main markets. Overseas growth has been boosted by favourable exchange rates and the acquisition of a processing plant in Yorkshire in 2004, which increased the group’s product range. Under founder and managing director George Abrahams, international sales grew 21% a year from £8.2m in 2009 to an annualised £12m in 2011.
