THE GREAT BRITISH EXCHANGE TO LAUNCH TOM KERRIDGE RANGE OF COOKWARE AND HOMEWARE PRODUCTS
The Great British Exchange has been working with celebrity chef Tom Kerridge, to develop a range of British made cookware products. The range includes knives, pans, ceramics, wood and textiles. The products will be launched at the Harrogate Home & Gift Show in July where retailers will be able to view the products and learn more about the stories behind the premium range.
The Tom Kerridge Range has been developed with a team of British manufacturers. The Great British Exchange, as licensee of the Tom Kerridge Range, has brought together the various manufacturers and will be managing the range’s launch to market.
“We’re all very proud of the Tom Kerridge Range,” said Matt Hopkins, Managing Director of The Great British Exchange, he continued, “Working with British manufacturers to produce a range of high quality products that will enter the market as a beacon of what is capable by brilliant British craftsmanship has been an extremely gratifying process. The range is an honest representation of what we as a nation are able to produce and the skills that are alive and kicking in our manufacturing regions. The response to the range so far has been brilliant and I can’t wait to introduce it to more retailers and the market at large.”
The Great British Exchange on securing the Tom Kerridge licence worked with Tom and the manufacturers to marry Tom’s knowledge as a professional chef and owner of the only 2 Michelin star pub in the UK with the skills and experience of the manufacturers. Bringing together Tom’s knowledge and the experience of the craftspeople involved with the collection has resulted in a practical and elegant range of products that have provenance.
“A huge amount of effort has gone into finding these fantastic manufacturers, all of whom are based in Great Britain. We are trying to breathe new life into Great British traditions, standing firm and not compromising on quality whilst showcasing the best that Britain has to offer. All of these products have been tested and are meant to be used rather than just looked at and stand the test of time. Think ‘Land Rover Defender’ for kitchens!” said Tom Kerridge.
The Great British Exchange is currently working with retail partners to secure the path to market for the range ready for Autumn 2016 and any interested parties are encouraged to contact the team based in Harrogate.
