Commenting on the honour, Greenstar WES founder and managing director James Donaldson said: “The Queen’s Award is a tribute to typical British ingenuity and application, and I and all my staff feel very privileged to have our hard work rewarded in this manner. We’ve sacrificed a lot to bring our dreams to fruition, and I’d like to thank all my staff for their dedication.”

Our team has worked very hard to transform the business and this award is great recognition of their efforts. We are all incredibly proud," added Dr Geoff Davis, managing director of Just Rollers.
