Pipers Crisps has been identified as one of London Stock Exchange Group’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’. The report is a celebration of the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses across the UK. To be included in the list, companies need to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers.
Alex Albone, Founder of Pipers Crisps said: “We are delighted that our business has been recognised in this way. It’s not simply an acknowledgement of our outstanding growth since we started in 2004. It recognises the hard work and commitment of the many people who have made this remarkable growth possible – our staff, our customers and the community in which we operate. They’ve all played their part in this achievement,” Alex adds.
The Pipers’ story began when three farmers joined forces to produce great tasting, quality crisps using local potatoes. Since then Pipers has grown to become a significant business, based in rural Lincolnshire, employing over 75 local people. Pipers Crisps are found in foodservice and independent food retailers, ranging from coffee shops and farm shops to pubs and bars. Pipers delivers directly from a number of regional hubs across the UK using its own vans, as well as supplying through distribution partners. The company also exports extensively, now selling to 32 countries worldwide.
