Bolst Global Newsletter
Wow, it's nearly November! Where has 2018 gone?!

I think all the travelling and international development we have been doing on behalf of our clients has made this year fly by!

After a few months of not sending out a newsletter then we thought it was time to let you know what we have been up to over the past few months as well as let you know what else we have up our sleeves.

So in September Victoria undertook a productive two weeks in the Gulf on behalf of ongoing clients and new projects for brands wishing to develop market insights and business opportunities in this part of the world. We met with all the UAE retailers plus many in Kuwait too as well as several major distributors and players in these markets. All in all a very fruitful visit with many new orders pending for our clients off the back of it!

Lucia has also been visiting many customers in Spain for our clients too - travelling between Madrid and Barcelona on several occasions to continue to develop our ties with retailers and distributors in this market who are continuously looking for healthier food and drink choices!

In October we had a successful Bread and Jam show, the only one we exhibit at as Bolst Global. Read our team member Madeleine's account of our time there below.
And at the end of the month part of the team went to SIAL Paris for a week to represent various clients and drive forward business opportunities on a global basis, meeting our networks from Asia, Middle East and Europe.

November, well we aren't resting and we have a market visit to Sweden that we are preparing for - with any brands still wanting to sign up and have us represent your brand there still having just a couple of days left to do so!

As always if anyone needs any international support then please do get in touch - we are happy to help!


Happy exporting everyone,
Victoria, Lucia and the Bolst Global team.
