About the Awards

The Award programme, now in its 58th year, has awarded over 7,000 companies since its inception in 1965.

Previously known as The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, the awards were renamed last year to reflect His Majesty The King’s desire to continue the legacy of HM Queen Elizabeth II by recognising outstanding UK businesses.

I congratulate the recipients of this year’s King’s Awards for Enterprise, who exemplify the talent, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit of British business.

I wish them every success and commend the invaluable contributions they make to communities both at home and overseas, helping to grow the UK economy.
