The independent ethical cleaning products firm has seen a high turnover, profits rising and with profits expected to reach 30% profit this year, the business has set its sights on big businesses, including Waitrose.
Bio-D’s growth has been attributed to a brand redesign, new product development and improvements to pack format to ensure that they remain at the forefront of the eco-friendly cleaning market.
Bio-D’s Managing Director Lloyd Atkin said: “Being shortlisted in the Small Business of the Year category is excellent recognition of our commitment to producing environmentally responsible detergents.
“We are very proud to be a finalist, especially in our 25th anniversary year” he added.
Bio-D products are currently sold through Oxfam, Booths, high street health food stores and a variety of online retailers including www.biodegradable.biz.
Alongside expansion into bigger businesses, the cleaning products company hope to add more deals in the catering, cleaning and public services sector.
