REPRESENTATIVES from The Queen's Awards Service re-visited a leading manufacturer in Nuthampstead to promote the awards.
David Moore and Steve Brice are encouraging companies to enter next year's awards for international trade, innovation, sustainable development and enterprise promotion.
Mr Brice, secretary of the awards service, said: "Winning the award can help with credibility and gives companies a competitive edge.
"It is a popular misconception that a business has to be big to win, but many previous Queen's Award winners have had less than 10 employees."
Mr Moore and Mr Brice revisited Aromco in Nuthampstead which manufactures flavourings for use in food, drink, tobacco, pharmaceuticals, and pet foods.
It received the Queen's Award for Enterprise last year after it was judged on its export performance and growth of overseas earnings.
Mr Brice said: "Aromco had the most phenomenal growth and marketing strategies and the company is continuing to grow."
Antony Gore, marketing manager at Aromco, said: "The award has helped strengthen the company even more and when we enter new relationships with companies it helps us put a perception across."
Chris Melton, commercial manager at Aromco, said: "The award gives customers confidence. It recognises our capabilities."
Since receiving the award the company has set up Aromco India, a joint venture with Indian company Synthite.
Paolo George, managing director of Aromco India, said: "The award reaffirms the fact that Aromco is an established and credible player in the food industry."
Any companies who would like to be in with a chance of winning The Queen's Awards 2007 should enter by October 31.
Companies who do not succeed are given feedback in order to improve on their performance for the following year's awards.
