      Lovehoney will compete with nine other finalists for the prestigious award, the winner being revealed at the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards gala dinner held on 10 November at Park Lane's Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

      Lovehoney Co-owner Richard Longhurst said: "Making customers happy has always been our fundamental goal so we're absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted for this award.

      "No other company in our industry offers the same level of commitment to customer satisfaction and we couldn't be more proud of all of our staff."

      An all encompassing range of industries are represented in the shortlists for this year's awards, with companies from recruitment and children's clothing, to pet food and online marketing being selected for the chance to win a coveted Lloyds Bank National Business Award.

      The Sunday Times International Track 200

      Leading online sex toy retailer Lovehoney has been ranked at number nine in the sixth annual Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200.

      The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 ranks Britain's mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales, measured over the last two years of available accounts.

      Lovehoney is ranked at number nine nationally and number one for the South West region after overseas sales grew 146% pa to £5.1m in 2014.

      The Bath-based business has launched US, Australian, French, German and EU websites over the last two years and has benefited from the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey, of which it holds the worldwide license for pleasure products.

      Lovehoney co-founder Neal Slateford said: "This announcement is very exciting for us and we're thrilled to have ranked so highly.

      "Seeing Lovehoney grow so quickly overseas has been incredible and a very exciting journey for everyone involved.

      "The last couple of years have been fundamental in solidifying Lovehoney as a household name both in the adult industry and the mainstream."

      Companies featured in last year's league table include Cath Kidston, Hunter, Specsavers and LUSH.
