The owner has spent the last 2 years growing the business that benefits from a valuable exclusive distribution contract with a market leading manufacturer of compostable products.
Sales are achieved via word of mouth, limited advertising, and online searching. Clients can browse over 250 products via an online catalogue, the products are highly regarded evidenced by sales increasing by 30% over the last year, and circa 80% of clients repeat ordering.
The trend in eco-products is an important factor for the continued growth of the business. Local and District Councils campaign communities regarding environmental waste reduction initiatives, with Oxford County Council introducing an edit that all commercial food outlets must use compostable products. It is thought that this stance will be replicated by other Council’s in the near future.
The current owner manages the business on a part time basis. There is significant scope to grow the business through promotional activities, trade shows, events and increased advertising.
Overheads are low as orders are fulfilled via the product supplier, the process could be more efficient if a new owner held higher levels of stock in the more popular items.
The business would be well suited to an individual looking for such a business opportunity, or an existing commercial food related business looking to diversify. The business is being sold as a going concern to include the website, the brand, all intellectual property, marketing collaterals, and rights to the client database.
