DAY 5: Friday 22th July

Interview – Scott Davies, Hilltop Honey

In this Royal Welsh Virtual Business Show event, NatWest Cymru’s Gemma Casey is in conversation with the founder of Powys-based Hilltop. Scott shares his journey from that very first beehive to scaling thanks to a small overdraft, and from expanding the product range to taking a leap of faith into much bigger premises.

It started with a passion for beekeeping, sales to friends and family – and a hope that it just might turn into a job. Now Scott Davies is at the helm of a company with a multi-million pound turnover, a team of more than 70, a product line on the shelves of a host of major retailers – and an ambition to be at the forefront of building the UK’s food & drink manufacturing capacity.
