Kiddylicious: the only food company and ranked 13th in The Sunday Times SME Export Track
28th February 2017: As the fastest growing brand in baby and toddler snacking, we are delighted to have been ranked 13th in the prestigious Sunday Times SME Export Track 100 and we are the only food brand to be included in the league table.
With our wide range of fun, tasty snacks for babies, toddler and pre-schoolers, we achieved impressive international sales growth of 114%, with export sales worth over £2m at brand value for year-end 2015. 2016 sales continued to grow at a strong rate.
Sally Preston, our Founder and MD said, “This is a fantastic achievement and represents a milestone in our international strategy for the business. To be recognised as the UK’s 13th leading exporter and the only food company in the league table shows true the demand for our innovative products. This success wouldn’t have been possible without the support and effort of all the team.”
We sell our products in 22 countries worldwide including China and the Middle East. The forecast sales for China are for over $1m in 2017, our largest international market.
Gareth Oakley, Managing Director SME banking at Lloyds Banking Group, commented: “For businesses that take the leap to trade overseas, the rewards can be significant – the strong growth achieved by this year’s SME Export Track 100 is proof of that.”
Founded by Sally Preston, Kiddylicious is privately owned and has been successful from the start – always being one step ahead, we were the first company to introduce fruit snacking into the baby category and have continued to bring innovative new products to market every year. All Kiddylicious products offer consumers real choice and healthier alternatives to other snacks.
