BEDFORD brewery Charles Wells has been listed in the inaugural Sunday Times International Track 200.
Charles Wells Ltd was listed at number 194 in the Sunday Times first International Track 200 league table and awards programme at the weekend.
It noted that the company, which was the only brewery on the list, has grown its international sales to 22 per cent a year from £7.3million in 2009 to an annual £10.9million in just two years.
Chairman Paul Wells said: “The UK is a challenging economy at the moment so we’ve put a lot of effort into exporting – for both our traditional beers and our pub know-how.
“We’re pleased to have been listed as it demonstrates the strength of our business in a number of different markets, and is the result of great planning, hard work and effective team working from so many people within the company.”
He added: “We have two exports that have made a great impression with our overseas customers – a fantastic range of traditional beers and the unique English pub.
“We’ve worked hard to bring the same quality and standards that we have in the UK to overseas markets so that all our customers can enjoy the authentic taste and atmosphere they’d find in this country.
“We’ve developed some special ranges of beers and a number of different styles that suit diverse marketplaces and our distributors share our passion for great quality beer and excellent customer service.”
