The company, in Stanbridge Road, Leighton Buzzard, has been awarded the accolade by the British Chambers of Commerce. It acknowledges “the incredible work UK businesses have been doing to support local communities, innovate and meet new demands during the Coronavirus pandemic”.

Peli BioThermal has been selected as a UK Business Hero following the campaign by the British Chambers of Commerce alongside the local Chamber network, which saw the company receive royal recognition with a letter of congratulations from Her Royal Highness, The Countess of Wessex GCVO, who is supporting the campaign.

In the letter she highlights how it has given her great pride to hear how businesses have gone the extra mile to help during the Coronavirus pandemic.

“It has been a particular pleasure to hear stories of how you have supported your local communities throughout the outbreak and to see you nominated as UK Business Heroes by your local Chamber of Commerce.

“I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your positive contributions, congratulate you on your recognition as a UK Business Hero and wish you every success in your endeavours in the weeks and months ahead as we look to the recovery of our country.”

Peli BioThermal is a member of the Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce and was awarded the prestigious UK Business Hero stamp following a nomination by the organisation.

Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce chief executive, Justin Richardson, said: “Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate Peli BioThermal and all the staff involved for their contribution and responding to the needs of the local community.”

Justin highlighted how Peli BioThermal was nominated for loaning some of its award-winning temperature controlled shippers to help with the delivery of essential pharmaceuticals direct to the homes of housebound patients during the pandemic.

Paul Terry, director of Sales EMEA at Peli BioThermal, said: “Our local support is a part of our overall ongoing efforts to help in the global fight against Covid-19, which has seen us expand our deep frozen product range in response to the pandemic to meet vaccine shipping requirements.”
