Firstly, to all our friends and customers, we wish you a happy 2017 and wish you all the very best. The year has certainly started with a bang for us here at JWP as we won 2 awards on the same day.
Lock & Lock, our signature brand of food storage containers, won the gold award for Best Kitchenware Brand at the Mumii Family Awards. This is an award that we are delighted to have won, as it is voted for by consumers who actually went out and bought the products.
Lock & Lock has been a staple for many families throughout the country and even though we know how good the brand is, it is good to see that it is valued by parents and families as a whole. In addition to this we were also up against some mighty competition in Addis and Joseph Joseph, 2 companies that we admire a lot so it made us feel very proud to have even been nominated amongst such esteemed company, let alone winning.
As if that wasn’t enough, on the very same day it was the Lock & Lock Annual Pan European conference, where every single European territory that sells Lock & Lock was in attendance. At the conference it was revealed that JWP won the award for the highest sales throughout Europe for the year 2016.
This was a real unexpected treat as quite a few of the territories, such as France and Germany have bigger populations but we were delighted to achieve the highest sales throughout Europe and it’s thanks to everyone who went out and purchased Lock & Lock, so a big thanks from us.
There’s no time to get all triumphant however as this is one of the busiest times of the year for us. The Spring Fair is just around the corner so all hands are on deck to ensure our stand is of the highest calibre. This year we’re really pushing the boat out with our most ambitious stand yet so please come and say hello to us. We’re in hall 9, which is the housewares hall on stand number 9F60-G41 and will be delighted to show you our new offerings.
