Ex GB athletes win Queen’s Award
Ex GB athletes win Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade
Dog Rocks Distribution Ltd is owned by three ex GB athletes who have transferred their skills from sport to business; Andrew Hine and Nick Evans represented GB during their careers playing International Polo and Carina Evans represented GB as a World Cup Skeleton athlete.
The Queen’s Award received for International Trade is in recognition of achieving increased year on year export figures, product innovation, sustainability and bringing to international markets unique and where possible natural solutions for pet parents.
“It was a very welcome surprise when the email popped into my inbox signifying a win! It’s an auspicious date being the Queen’s 90th Birthday and we are delighted to have cause to celebrate with Her Majesty.” Carina Evans.
Dog Rocks helps stop pet urine burning the grass. Thought to have been first recommended by an Aboriginal gardener, Dog Rocks is mined in Australia and is the company’s lead product. Having entered the European pet market in 2008 and moved into the North American market in 2012 the company has grown rapidly to a team of 6 full time employees. There are now 20 product lines including the award winning Torus Bowl and Pet Remedy.
