Llanllyr Source Scores Double at Top Export Awards

Llanllyr Source Scores Double at Top Export Awards December 2007

Llanllyr Water Company celebrated the end of the year by scooping two of the major awards at Food From Britain’s annual ceremony in London last month. The leading Drinks Exporter of the Year award can now sit alongside the Welsh Exporter of the Year awards as Llanllyr became the only company to pick up more than one prize.
Chairman Mark Swanwick, pictured receiving the Drinks Exporter of the Year award from FFB North America’s Pavel Kolarov thinks that recognition of the reasons for winning it will further boost the company’s sales growth. ‘We always thought that to penetrate overseas markets we would need more than simply a good product at a competitive price. The judges noted the importance they placed on our market building strategies and our environmental policy’.
Patrick Gee, Llanllyr’s Sales and Marketing Director completed a ‘double’ when he accepted the Welsh Exporter of the Year award having picked up the soft drink trophy at the True Taste of Wales Awards in November. ‘We have been bottling water now for 9 years although exporting came much later. Many of our team have been with us for most of that time and this and other awards we won this year recognise their fantastic efforts over that period.’
Coming back to the present though Mark Swanwick said ‘That was 2007 and we are now looking forward to 2008. We are excited about our plans for the future and indeed will have something to announce in the next few weeks.’
