2021 – it’s been quite a year.
In a year that’s been difficult for many (us included), we wanted to end 2021 on a positive note! Giving ourselves a little pat on the back for the progress we’ve made as a business. The following are a few of the things we’re most proud of this year:
Launching Brand Your V2
We took what we’d learnt in our first 18 months of operating and used that as a springboard to create a new web platform that focuses more on user experience, pricing transparency, accessibility and quality.
We focused on improving the customer experience to allow users to find and buy the perfect products for your store in a few clicks. With clearer visuals, text and navigation, everything has become more seamless – we’re chuffed with the result, but this is only the beginning.
It’s all about the brands
We’ve had the pleasure of working with over 300 incredible brands, collaborating with some truly inspiring teams. To name a few Clean Kitchen Club, Hoxton Bakehouse, Grind, Medicine Bakery, Cafe De Nata, Boom Bap Burger, Zephyr’s Burgers, Farm Girl, Blondies Kitchen and Café Kitsune. It’s been a pleasure to see the speed of innovation in the hospitality industry first hand, despite the challenging landscape.
Our team has doubled in size this year, and we couldn’t be happier. Honourable mentions go to Kathryn & Steve! We’re continue to grow and are currently looking for a new Client Relationship Executive, with several more job openings coming soon!
Supply chain navigators
Supply chain issues have been well documented over the course of the year, inevitable knock-on effects from Brexit and the pandemic have affected raw materials and logistics. It’s been difficult but we’re proud at how we’re navigating it, trying to maintain full honesty and transparency with our clients throughout, whilst optimising our own supply chain to keep things ticking over.
More and more products
We’ve continued to expand our product offering, a process we see as ongoing as we continually look to innovate. All of our new products (some launching very soon) align with our key values, accessible to everyone (with low minimum orders), eco-friendly, guaranteed quality and reliable and honest lead times.
Big things to come
We’re proud of our achievements, but we’re certainly not about to rest on our laurels. We’ve been beavering away in the background to establish a storage and fulfilment options as part of our Brand More service for bespoke products and larger volumes. We’ll be able to offer this very soon as well as a few other things we have up our sleeves for 2022 – watch this space!
…and finally a BIG thank you
We really wouldn’t be where we are without our awesome brand partners. It’s been a true honour to work with you this year, to share your passion and to see you grow. You keep us going and inspire us to continually push the boundaries. So a big thank you to you all!!
