Our Story


Formed from a desire to create stronger links between British producers and retailers and move manufacturing away from the Far East, The Great British Exchange was founded by Matthew Hopkins in 2014. With a background in brand licensing for high profile brands, his experience has given him an intuitive understanding of the tough and ever-changing requirements of the retail sector.

Following conversations with UK retailers of all sizes, it was clear that there is a demand for unique, high-quality British-made products but a lack of resource to discover and create connections with these brands themselves.

Fast-forward a few years and we offer trade buyers access to hundreds of British brands under a single account and with a simple order process and work with buyers and brands to offer exclusivity within a geographical area.

Based in a converted barn in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, our dedicated team makes sure everything runs smoothly behind the scenes.
