Genesis Biosciences sweeps the board at Cardiff Business Awards
Genesis Biosciences is celebrating after triumphing at this year's Cardiff Business Awards, winning two award categories as well as the coveted Cardiff Business of the Year.
The company, which ferments Bacillus bacteria and creates natural microbial and antimicrobial products for a range of industries, secured Green Business of the Year, Technology Business of the Year alongside the Cardiff Business of the Year award.
Genesis has been at the forefront of the fight against the spread of Coronavirus, supplying tonnes of its natural anti-microbial sanitisers across the UK and much of Europe since the beginning of pandemic.
Replacing the need for traditional harsh chemicals, its microbial products comprise beneficial probiotic bacterial strains that provide long term cleaning power whilst encouraging a balanced surface microbiome, which is often stripped by harsh chemical cleaners.
"We are delighted to have won three awards at this year's Cardiff Business Awards - particularly the Cardiff Business of the Year title,” says Conrad Mielcuszny, the company’s CEO. “It is great to have our continued innovation and environmental approach recognised, as well as our commitment to growth.
"This recognition is well deserved by our dedicated team in Cardiff who have worked so diligently throughout the Covid pandemic and we are really pleased to receive the honour."
The company was presented with its awards at a glittering ceremony hosted at Cardiff City Hall by Jamie Owen.
