Farewell 2015

2015 has been a great year for our business, we've been moving from strength to strength and have also been deepening our commitment to quality, ethical trade and the environment.

We have renewed our partnership with Fairtrade by extending our licence to 2017 and have increased our support in our 2 primary regions - Australia and the UK.  Consumers in both these regions are strong supporters of Fairtrade and we continue to meet the high standards set at a global level by Fairtrade.

We have reinvigorated our UK operation with new key staff and an expanded sales and marketing effort.  This has quickly turned a success for everyone.  UK businesses love our products, especially the speed of information flow due to our use of manufacturing centres and how we use our Direct Model to benefit everyone.

To support our sales expansion, we have increased production capacity within our manufacturing base.  Procurement and Product Management functions have been consolidated in our Sydney Office to ensure a single channel of communication within our company which allows faster and more accurate communication flow to our factories (based in China and India) and to our customers.

At it's core, our business has an unwavering commitment to Ethical Sourcing and the Environment.

Our challenge is continuing our good work in the future.  We live by the philosophy *Walk the Talk* and we challenge you to ask you suppliers the same.

2016 is just moments away and we have some bigger plans afoot.  We'll have an introduction to 2016 in January... after Christmas and the New Year has passed.

Stay well and be safe.
