We’re celebrating Made in UK Day on 9 March 2023!
As the appetite to shop locally and support local businesses grows, we’re taking part in Made in UK Day on Thursday 9 March 2023.
The Made in UK Day campaign has been created by Make it British to celebrate their 10 year anniversary. Started as a blog by ex-retail buyer Kate Hills to champion all the wonderful products that are made in the UK, the Make it British website has now been visited by more than 6.5 million people looking to buy UK-made products and search for UK manufacturers. This year alone has seen a 68% increase in enquiries since the UK left the EU’s single market and customs union.
UK manufacturing is currently worth £192 billion to the UK economy and employs 2.7 million people. More than 65 million people live in the UK and if everyone bought just one item made in the UK worth £20 on Made in UK Day it would be worth £1.3billion.
We’re proud to be a British company with our HQ and Manufacturing site in the UK.
By purchasing from UK-made businesses like us you are helping to:
- Lower your carbon footprint
- Save essential skills
- Create job opportunities
- Promote UK craftsmanship
- Boost local economies
- Preserve UK manufacturing
Spend your money wisely and help UK manufacturing to thrive.
