LONDON, April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
For the second year running, luxury self-tanning brand, Vita Liberata has been recognized with the UK's most prestigious business award - The Queen's Award for Enterprise in International Trade. This award is universally regarded as the UK's highest accolade for international business success and to be awarded it for two years running acknowledges the significant drive and growth the company is achieving.
"Winning The Queen's Award for the second year running is an incredible accolade, one no other beauty brand has ever achieved. It's a recognition of the dynamic, creative, tenacious and incredibly smart team of (mostly) young women that work with us across 24 time zones and as many countries. It is even more remarkable when you consider that operations are run from the Company's Global Headquarters in the small market town of Ballyclare in Northern Ireland.
We have been fortunate to partner with some of the strongest retailers in our sector, who recognise both the amazing quality of our products, and the ability of our team to deliver on our joint goals. This Award recognises our team, our product and our determination to bring what we make to a world stage. It is a wonderful accolade. We are very proud indeed!" Founder and CEO of Vita Liberata, Alyson Hogg.
Having seen outstanding overseas sales growth of over 400% in recent years, Vita Liberata now sells to more than 1,200 spas and salons in the UK and Ireland and has growing presence in key retail chains, such as Boots, where the range is sold in over 1000 stores. Internationally, the Belfast-born company is now available in 26 countries worldwide in over 1000 stores, and in 2014, the award winning brand extended its channels to include QVC within the US.
