With an annual international sales growth over two years of 76%, Cambridge Commodities is also the highest ranked Cambridgeshire-based company in the league. The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest growing international sales.

Cambridge Commodities’ managing director, James Stevens commented: “I am so pleased that CCL has entered the International Track 200 league. We’ve worked incredibly hard as a team over the past few years as the business has rapidly grown alongside the sports nutrition market. Having just moved into a brand new building, we are excited at the prospect of entering the next stage of growth and continuing to contribute to the region’s economy.”
