Cocogreen celebrates second royal accolade for exceptional global growth

Cocogreen® is delighted to be honoured with the prestigious King’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade, marking a period of remarkable global expansion.

This recognition comes on the heels of our previous Queen’s Award win in 2018, and is a testament to our continued success in exporting innovative products across new and existing territories, where we’ve partnered with a diverse portfolio of leading tech-focused fruit and veg growers, from berries and citrus to salad and tree-grown crops.

Since then, the company has shown resilience in the face of geopolitical challenges posed by Brexit, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the outbreak of global conflicts such as those affecting shipping routes in the Red Sea.

Cocogreen®‘s next phase of growth is already taking shape, having established pathways into northern and central Europe, and delivering its first containers to Canada and the USA, all markets that show appetite for further adoption.

Dr Sudesh Fernando, CEO and co-founder of Cocogreen®, expressed appreciation for the award, stating:

“We’re honoured to accept this award for the second time. Our continuous investment in new technology and building a highly skilled, in-house team has strengthened every link in our supply chain, which has been vital in supporting the rapid international growth we are experiencing. Despite the challenges of global unrest, we have been able to adapt and maintain quality products and services, meeting high and growing demand in the face of a peat-free future. What’s more, we’ve done so in a way that is ethical and sustainable, and therefore true to our founding principles.”

The King’s Awards for Enterprise, previously known as The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, were renamed last year to reflect His Majesty The King’s desire to continue the legacy of HM Queen Elizabeth II’s by recognising outstanding UK businesses. The Award programme, now in its 58th year, is the most prestigious business award in the country, with successful businesses able to use the esteemed King’s Awards Emblem for the next five years.
