Anpario, a leading manufacturer of high performance natural feed additives, has received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. The products that Anpario produce are designed to protect and improve the health of animals worldwide.

David Bullen, Chief Executive Officer, and Karen Prior, Group Finance Director, attended a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace to recognize the achievement. They were introduced to the Queen and Prince Philip and spoke with Princess Anne, who was very interested in the group and its products. Other members of the royal family were also present, including The Duke of York and Princess Eugenie.

Such an achievement warrants an internal presentation ceremony and celebration, so that’s just what the Anpario team did.


The whole Anpario team came together to celebrate with colleagues from across all three trading brands: Kiotechagil, Optivite and Meriden. The team was joined by the Lord-Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire, Sir John Peace, who presented the award to David Bullen, CEO. The event was held at Hodsock Priory near Blyth, and other dignitaries from around Nottinghamshire joined Anpario for the occasion.

The purpose of the event was twofold, firstly to welcome all employees to join in the presentation ceremony but also to celebrate and thank everyone for their hard work.
