The Burden Group are pleased to have been listed in the top 20 of The fifth annual Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 league table supplement, that was published on 13 July 2014 with title sponsor HSBC.
The league table ranked companies’ international sales growth over the latest two years of available accounts, with minimum sales of £25m. The table was based on limited publicly available data of international sales so there are likely to be omissions, but it provides a useful picture of growth in overseas trade by UK private companies.
The 200 companies’ international sales grew by an average of 36% a year over two years to a total of £8.5bn. International sales growth ranged from 19% pa to 364% pa.
The Burden Group is listed by The Sunday Times as:
This supplier of red meat, game and poultry trades from London’s Smithfield meat market, exporting to customers in France, Spain and Italy. It also has a ship victualling business, Cavendish Ships Sores, which supplies cruise liners and ferries with a range of food. Exports rose by £11.1m in 2014. The business is led by chairman Trevor Hussey, 62, who bought a minority stake from the founding Burden family in 2008.
