“We are all incredibly proud to have once again received this most prestigious award.”

Vitabiotics has become the first vitamin company in British history to have won the Queen’s Award on two occasions.

Founded by Indian-born Kartar Singh Lalvani in 1971, for over 45 years Vitabiotics has specialised in pioneering innovation and development in vitamin and mineral supplements.

Their mission statement is ‘Empowering people to improve their health through innovation in nutritional healthcare’.

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation is awarded by the Queen, on the request of Great Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May.

It is the UK’s highest and most prestigious awards for business performance which are awarded to businesses during the Queen’s birthday

Announced on Her Majesty’s 92nd birthday on Saturday 21st April 2018, Vitabiotics’ Perfectil beauty vitamins range was the winner of this award.

According to an official release from Vitabiotics, it said:

“This is the first and only time that a vitamin company has received the award for innovation on two occasions.

“It marks the fourth Queen’s Award that the company has received, including the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation for its Pregnacare vitamin research in 2013.”

The ground-breaking Perfectil clinical trial showed how supplementation helps protect against the ageing effects of harsh winter weather on the skin.

This represents multiple innovations within cosmetic science and nutrition underpinned by a portfolio of filed and granted patents.

Perfectil is endorsed as a first choice nutritional supplement by beauty experts and celebrities such as Nicole Scherzinger.

The work pioneered by Vitabiotics founder and chairman Lalvani led to him receiving an honorary professorship from the University of Franche-Comté.

Lalvani is the first British scientist to have been awarded the professorship in the field of dermatology.

He spoke about receiving the Queen’s Award for the second time. Lalvani told the Deccan Chronicle:

“Vitabiotics is immensely honoured to once again receive the Queen’s Award for Innovation, in recognition of our unique and highly successful Perfectil research and innovation.

“This accolade is a testament to Vitabiotics and I would like to thank all of our dedicated staff, customers, suppliers and research partners for their continued support.”

Tej Lalvani, CEO for Vitabiotics and Kartar’s son added:

“Over the last 45 years, Vitabiotics has consistently been at the cutting edge of nutritional thinking, translating emerging science into effective products, and has established a greater range of new original clinical research, as background support to its formulations, than any other vitamin company.

“We are all incredibly proud to have once again received this most prestigious award.”
