An Ashington business is enjoying the sweet taste of success after gaining royal approval.

Cake decorating supplier Culpitt has received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for the second time since 2012, recognising its outstanding growth in export sales.

Managing director Tom Wylie said: “We are delighted to have received this recognition once more.

“Our continued success would not be possible without the efforts of all our staff, the unwavering support of our owners and Northumberland County Council’s commitment to providing such a positive and supportive environment.”

Culpitt was bought by DecoPac in 1998 and acquired Sugarfayre in 2009.

It employs 268 staff.
