Institute of Directors (IOD) Director of the Year 2012
“The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise – The proof that your business is the best” states the official website of the Queens Award for Enterprise.

Sun Mark Ltd has today been awarded the most prestigious Queens Award for Enterprise in International Trade from Her Majesty the Queen for an unprecedented fourth consecutive year demonstrating that it surely is the best. This extraordinary achievement means that it has a unique place in British business history and has broken all records.

It is worth remembering that Sun Mark Ltd was the only company in Britain to have won three consecutive Queens Awards for Enterprise and set a new record. Now by winning the fourth consecutive Queens Awards it has set its standards even higher.

Dr. Rami Ranger MBE, the founder and chairman, puts this success down to his upbringing where he was taught by his mother to strive for excellence in all tasks he performed, no matter how small. He is also grateful to the British sense of tolerance and fair play where an ordinary immigrant like him can realise his ambitions and become an asset for his family and adopted country.

Sun Mark Ltd exports British supermarket products to over 100 countries with staggering results. The company was set up in 1995 to market FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) products made by companies such as Unilever, Cadburys, Premier Foods, Fox’s, Nestle, Weetabix, Twinings, Heinz and many others.

In 2000 Sun Mark introduced a range of competitively priced products under its own brands. These are Robust, Golden Country, Pure Heaven, Royalty, Comfi, Bulldog, Laser, Anmol, Glucomax and others to complement its existing portfolio of products. The results speak for themselves. The company’s annual sales have since grown more than 10 fold and are still growing at over 30% per annum despite the global economic downturn.

The company’s motto is, “we only succeed when our customers succeed”. This is the defining principle of Sun Mark and has brought it this fourth recognition in as many years from Her Majesty The Queen. Sun Mark also featured for a second year running in the prestigious Sunday Times Profit Track 100, but at an improved position, up from 33 last year to 25 this year signifying the company’s stable growth and emphasis on the right principles for business.

The company was also listed in the “Investec Hot 100” as a company to watch. The company firmly believes in a partnership between its customers, suppliers and the team at Sun Mark working in perfect harmony to achieve a combined success for everyone.
