The Skipton based company, Yellow Octopus Limited, founded by Polish migrant, Jack Ostrowski, just 4 years ago has received the prestigious 'Queens's Awards for Enterprise 2010 for International Trade' in recognition of its rapidly increasing export trade.

Yellow Octopus Limited has been trading since 2006. It sells outlet clothing and footwear and high quality second-hand clothing to over 100 wholesalers and retailers in Central and Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East. In its first full 3 years of trading its export earnings from 16 countries have increased by nearly 400%.

Company founded by Jack Ostrowski who came to the UK as a Polish migrant just four and a half years ago, and has since established a multimillion pound global business. After graduating with his MSc in International Enterprise from Leeds Metropolitan University, Ostrowski has now set his sights on Harvard Business School's Owner/President Management Programme which he starts in May.

Jack comments "It has been a great honour to be recognised by Her Majesty the Queen and huge motivator to keep up the hard work. I have massive respect for the British entrepreneurial culture and hugely admire people like Richard Branson and Phillip Green. I strongly believe the United Kingdom is the best place in Europe to grow successful business contrary to the popular negative belief and publicity."
