Our client is already a well established leader in giftware and toys here in the UK, however they have no more than a scattering of export business; a situation they fully intend to rectify at some speed. Make no mistake the potential in the Europe and beyond is substantial, and that’s across both the multiple retail channel, as well as multiple garden centres and distributors. The main thrust of the sales effort however will be aimed at the export retail channel ( High Street, Department Stores, Grocery and possibly even Online ). Although Europe represents the low hanging fruit, there is also massive potential further afield!
