Neal’s Yard makes and sells organic natural beauty and health products. Romy Fraser founded the self-styled apothecary in 1981 in Covent Garden. Peter Kindersley, 73, of publisher Dorling Kindersley fame, bought her out in 2005 and now runs the company with his son Barnabas, 43. Consumers seeking certified organic brands have made the blue-bottled products popular in America and Asia, where the firm is targeting expansion. Exports hit an annualised £4.9m in 2013.
