Zooki won the award for best ‘International Trade’ at the 2021 North West Business Masters Awards and Annual Dinner this year.
This awards ceremony takes place every year and celebrates the achievements of companies from across the North West of England.
Nearly 300 guests attended the exciting black-tie event, which was hosted by TheBusinessDesk.com’s joint managing director Alex Turner.
Funds raised by the event were supporting the cause of TheBusinessDesk.com’s charity of the year ‘Rekindle’, which supports young people who experience mental health issues through its early intervention support and recovery programme, Small Steps.
“It’s exciting to be recognised for Zooki’s growth and reach on an international scale and we’re thrilled to see what the future holds,” says Jack Morrison, co-founder of Zooki.
Since being launched five years ago by university friends Jack Morrison and Marcus Mollinga, Zooki is now for sale in 49 countries and counting and 3500 stores worldwide. Recent landmark achievements have included becoming the first supplement to be included in a UK meal deal in WHSmith stores across the UK and being included as 33rd in the Startups 100 list.
Shelina Begum, North West Business Editor, says: “In a year like no other, we wanted to recognise the efforts and showcase the positive work of North West businesses.
“Even with the challenges of the last 18 months – businesses in the region have showed fortitude and determination, working to ensure that operations continued to run as well as innovate and adapt to the changing circumstances to survive – and even thrive – despite the odds.
“However, what it has truly shown across the region is a business community that is willing to support each other, collaborate, and go that extra mile for their customers and importantly for their staff."
