International Track 200

The depreciation of the pound against the euro helped this supplier of red meat and poultry expand business in the eurozone – exports rose to £6.6m in 2013. Trading from London’s Smithfield – Britain’s largest wholesale meat market – it has customers in France, Spain and Italy. Chairman Trevor Hussey, 61, led a buyout from the founding Burden family in 2008.
