A North London based company has been honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade 2020.

The queens award for enterprise is the most celebrated accolade a British business can have.

The Desi Doll Company is one of 220 organisations nationally to be recognised with a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise. Announced today, The Desi Doll Company has been recognised for its excellence and outstanding success in International Trade.

We have grown organically since then to become the world’s leading Islamic toy supplier.  Our business performs a very important role, ensuring that muslim children can learn about their faith with fun, interactive toys that nurture love and confidence.

We are delighted to have won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade and see it not only as a huge honour, but also as an incredible achievement that reflects our hard work in creating export markets around the globe.
