Having outgrown their kitchen tables, the pair now operate the business from premises near Oxford. With full time staff, they fulfil orders for 300 stockists nationwide including Liberty, Fortnum & Mason, Blenheim Palace and Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons. A small retail area allows sales of the full product range as well as special offers, end of lines, seconds etc. A burgeoning export business is taking shape with increasing sales to the US, Greece and Australia. 2013 has also seen Branche d'Olive move into the world of Face Book, Twitter and Pinterest.
Next season's trade fairs start in January with Top Drawer (Olympia 12-14 January) followed by Spring Fair (Birmingham 2-6 February). We hope also to be represented in New York, at NY NOW (Javits Centre, UK Pavilion 1-6 February).
Branche d'Olive's representation at next year's retail fairs is expected to increase with Hampton Court, Spirit of Summer and the Blenheim Game Fair all being considered.
