As 43% of cyber attacks are directed at small businesses there is no question that business owners need to ensure that their businesses are protected.

Cyber attacks are widespread. Consumers are frequently targeted, as are businesses, both large and small. Consumers and micro-businesses may have some protection from the new agreement the banks are signing up to, but, with a recent BBC article saying some banks still haven’t signed up to the voluntary agreement around payment scams, they need to ensure they protect themselves as much as they can.

Although it may surprise you to hear that the retail market is actually growing, you may be less surprised to hear that fast fashion is in decline while premium fashion is on the rise. Customers are becoming more aware of the damaging effects fast, disposable, fashion has on the planet and are opting to spend their money on longer-lasting, premium brands instead.

Fashion consumers are also asking for products that reflect their personalities and say something about who they are. If brands get it right, they can capitalize on the growth in premium fashion, creating a strong brand that stands the test of time.

When you’re just starting out approaching and dealing with large supermarkets can be daunting. After all, the majority of British shoppers regularly buy from them either online or instore, so it’s hugely important for brand awareness, sales, etc.

Having launched four new snacks brands into the UK market over the past few years and having got them into a number of major supermarkets, I’ve gained an understanding of the process. Hopefully, you can learn from my experiences, avoid my mistakes, and find success for your brand.

Across the food and beverage sector, there has been a clear trend towards higher-quality products over the past 15 years or so. In an effort to differentiate, food and drink manufacturers have been carving out niches for very specific, high-quality product ranges. From botanical health drinks to all-natural pork scratchings, the range and quality of products have been steadily increasing.

In the alcoholic drinks market, the shift towards more diversified and premium drinks has been most notable when it comes to beer and gin but is starting to be recognized in other categories, such as rum, as well as driving entirely new categories of spirits. Alcoholic drinks manufacturers and retailers need to be ready to jump on these trends in the near future or risk becoming obsolete.

When I started out in the organic products business, there were hardly any organic products! These days it’s possible to get virtually every food imaginable in organic format, and in ever-increasing quantities.

The world beat a path to our door when we first had organic brown rice. Now it’s a commodity and you can get many different kinds; long grain, short grain, red, black, basmati – all organic.
