Anacarda wins Kings Award for Enterprise – International Trade 2024!

We are delighted to announce that Anacarda Ltd, the UK’s leading supplier of Bio based specialist Cashew Nutshell derived epoxy hardeners is today (6th May 2024) celebrating being named winner of the King’s Award for Enterprise.

The Wigan-based company secured the award – the UK’s most prestigious accolade for business success – in the International Trade Category for its specialist Phenalkamine products offered under the Cardamine brand. This award is added to the current Queen’s Award for Enterprise received in 2021 for innovation and these innovative products are the reason for this second huge success.

Cardamine grades are used in a variety of industrial coating applications, especially in protective Marine coatings. In keeping with UN initiatives and targeting Sustainable Development Goals, the Cardamine grades tick a multitude of boxes aside from their green sustainable feedstock and high bio-based Carbon content. These materials not only satisfy new regulations, but they also provide exceptional cure response and outstanding hydrophobicity and corrosion protection.

Paul Jones FRSC, Managing Director and former kings award recipient for and formulator of these Anacarda products said: “I’m delighted that Anacarda has won the King’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category complementing our Queens Award for Innovation.  We continue to evolve resin chemistry based on sustainable materials and drive for hazard reduction. The development of new products and push to evolve and improve has no doubt contributed to our success and is something we believe will continue to serve us well.

Eric Van Nevel, Managing Director : “I feel very honoured that Anacarda Ltd has been awarded The King’s Award for Enterprise – International Trade. It is a great recognition of our efforts to produce bio-based products around the globe.
