Fast Track 100

This West Sussex firm handmade and sold 4.7m pies and quiches last year compared with 2.9m the year before. Sales have risen due to the larger range of products available in Waitrose, and an increase in the numbers sold each week at Sainsbury’s. Founder Camilla Stephens says special tasting evenings have helped the business to understand better what shoppers want. Sales grew 77% a year, from £1.5m in 2007 to £8.1m in 2010.
