The Little Soap Company has received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for its Eco Warrior products.
Produced by a team of 28 from its headquarters in picturesque Broadway, the range of solid soap bars avoids the use of plastic bottles – and has now been recognised for its excellence in innovation.
Instead of liquid products, they make shampoo, shaving foam, facial wash, shower gel and body scrub bars from natural, organic ingredients.
Sold in high street stores across the UK, they are the brainchild of Emma Heathcote-James, who started making the soaps back in 2008 from her kitchen table.
Heathcote-James, who received the award on Thursday 21 April 2022, is delighted.
The 45-year-old, who lives near Chipping Campden, said: ‘It’s wonderful for the team to be acknowledged with such a prestigious and highly respected national business award.
‘To be acknowledged by the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise takes our environmental efforts to the next level.
‘As a business we have a responsibility help improve the world and we will continue to educate about the importance of challenger brands, the critical need for UK manufacturing, the need for businesses to genuinely balance people, profit and planet at the heart all they do and most of all, the importance of kindness.’
