Pooch & Mutt beat 2,000 companies to win SMARTA ‘Made in Britain’ award.
The SMARTA 100 awards are the UK’s largest awards dedicated to championing smart, inspiring, resourceful small businesses. This year over 2000 companies entered the awards, so getting into the final 100 is an amazing achievement in itself. The final 100 companies are split into 10 categories and the winner is decided by public vote. Over 70,000 votes were cast, making winning a category both a testament to the companies themselves and the loyalty and engagement of their customers.
Pooch & Mutt won the ‘Made in Britain’ category, described by SMARTA as “celebrating those manufacturers and exporters trading globally. These businesses are crucial to the economy and prove that brand Britain and UK Export is thriving”. Pooch & Mutt’s range of ethical, natural treats, grain-free foods and supplements are all made in the UK to the highest standards and are sold throughout the UK and worldwide.
The judges said, “As a nation of animal lovers, it’s unsurprising that this business has really taken off. Next stop: world domination”.
