She added: “Our passion for authentic food and drinks, innovative ideas and international approach are eventually giving significant progress to the business.”

Created 30 years ago, Hay Hampers has always been a family-run business for over 30 years. In July 2014, the company was taken over by the Da Re family.

Since then the company has reached a distinctive high end positioning in the gift hampers market and its turnover has tripled from £500,000 to £1.5 million.

The award winners will be announced in London on November 29.
