AN organic clothing store, a fish oil brand and a high-end building company are among the fastest growing businesses in Brighton, according to a new list.

Almost 20 Brighton businesses made it into the list of the 50 fastest growing independent businesses in Sussex.

The list was compiled by the specialist law firm Acumen Business Law, using data from the world’s first AI-powered search engine for private investment markets, called mnAI.

Among the top growing businesses in the county were 19 companies based in Brighton and Hove.

These include Organic Zoo, a children's clothing store in St George's Road in Kemp Town which sells organic cotton clothes produced in Europe, and Bare Biology, a company which sells Omega 3 fish oil supplements using Norwegian fish oil.

Digital agency BozBoz in Richmond Place and PR stunt and content agency Sketch Events in Church Road were among the fastest growing companies in the city.

Hove-based Minton Young, a design-led building firm which specialises in high-end construction projects, also made the list.

Penina Shepherd, chief executive of Acumen Business Law said: "As a founder and chief executive of a Sussex based business myself, I know what a rollercoaster this year has been for businesses.

"I’m thrilled that the Top 50 Fastest-Growing Businesses in Sussex initiative can recognise the success and efforts of the teams involved, who are all making a remarkable difference, especially during such unprecedented times.”
