Owned and operated by husband and wife team Neil Urry and Alex Allen, Vegepod UK Ltd are expanding into the UK garden retail market.
Launched in the UK in May 2018, the Australian company supplies raised garden beds. It has reported exceptional sales since appearing at the Chelsea Flower show.
Aimed at the grow your own market and designed and developed in Australia by Matt Harris, Vegepod is a unique raised garden bed.
The international company has operations in Australia, the US, Singapore and New Zealand. The UK is the next obvious market due to the growth of the garden industry and the grow your own movement.
Neil Urry, Head of UK Sales & Operations says: ?With a growing portfolio of countries behind Vegepod, we felt we were in a position to tackle the UK market.
“We wanted to do it right and ensure we were putting our best foot forward at the right time. Our first six months has been outstanding. We have trialled the product at some of the best UK gardening shows and the response has been fantastic.
“We are confident that the gardening public will embrace our product. In 2019 we plan to continue to develop the market by offering it to sale to selected garden centres.?
?We stand by our ethos of ‘making growing vegetables easy and fun for everyone, everywhere’. We want to make it achievable for those less likely to be gardening.?
In a short period of time, customer advocacy is already high. Vegepod already sees repeat purchases from customers and a growing social media presence.
