M&M Supplies UK PLC, based in Bletchley, has been awarded the most prestigious award that can be given to any business by Her Majesty The Queen.
The Mayor of Milton Keynes, Councilor Amanda Marlow and MP Ben Everitt visited M&M Supplies on Friday (10/6), to meet the company’s managing director and staff and recognize the award.
M&M Supplies UK PLC has been based in Bletchley for over 40 years.
The company distributes consumer goods on behalf of the world’s leading manufacturers, such as Kelloggs, Mars, Proctor & Gamble, Nestlé and Kraft Heinz.
The company has grown its international markets by more than 37% year-over-year over the past three years, during the pandemic and in the post-Brexit market.
Frank Purcell, Managing Director, said: “I am extremely proud of the company for achieving this incredible achievement. The award was only possible thanks to the whole team working incredibly hard day in and day out, serving customers in the UK and across Europe.
“We are very proud to fly the flag of Great Britain, we have worked hard to forge partnerships around the world, attend trade shows and find new opportunities. However, we also spend a tremendous amount of time supporting our UK partners including supporting Milton Keynes Foodbank with donations and logistical support.
Mayor of Milton Keynes Cllr, Amanda Marlow, added: “The M&M Supplies team should be extremely proud of their success. Such an award highlights the dedication and passion for what they do. Receiving it in the year of the Queen’s Jubilee also makes it a bit more special.
“Not only will M&M Supplies be an ambassador for the country, but also an ambassador for Milton Keynes, showing the entrepreneurial spirit of our city.”
“I also want to thank them for their work with the Food Bank. This is a very difficult time for households, with the cost of living a real challenge for many. The need for M&M Supplies and similar businesses to support food banks is real and urgent. We are fortunate to have a well organized food bank and this is largely thanks to the support provided by the team at M&M Supplies. »
With a new award, M&M Supplies hopes to use its new platform to highlight the important work it does and bring more investment to Bletchley.
