For Waitrose the partnership is a great way to attract new customers from all over the world as it seeks to expand in international markets, InternetRetailing writes. By having its products sold via the British Corner Shop website, Waitrose gets access to new markets including Germany and the US. At the moment, these aren’t among the 60 countries to which the UK supermarket exports.
Biscuits and household are in demand
“British Corner Shop gives a global audience access to Waitrose and provides a platform for our British suppliers to showcase the great food and drink they produce”, commercial director Mark Williamson explains. Over 2,000 of Waitrose’s own-label products are added to the current British Corner Shop range. “We know the brand will go down well with our British expat customer base, in particular categories such as biscuits and household are in demand, and the Waitrose Duchy Organic brand is often requested”, says British Corner Shop managing director Mark Callaghan.
