UK businesses that are amongst the best in their field are being encouraged to gain recognition for their excellence by applying for The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise – the most prestigious business awards in the UK.

The Awards are bestowed by Her Majesty The Queen in three categories: Innovation, International Trade and Sustainable Development.
