Hollingbery commented about his visit, “It was a pleasure to visit Bigneat and tour the premises, meet staff and managers and talk about the economic climate. It's a tremendous accolade the company has received for exporting its products and contributing to the UK economy and I congratulate them.”

“To have such an award-winning company here in Waterlooville is a matter of great pride for me as the local MP and for residents too. Bigneat is just the sort of enterprising and innovative business we must do all we can to nurture and help as we move towards being a major global trading country in the years to come.”
