Speaking about BoB, non-executive Director and renowned designer, Wayne Hemingway MBE said, “I have been a fan of Best of Britannia since its inaugural event in 2012. BoB is hitting the zeitgeist with British manufacturing seeing a resurgence.

We are at a time when retailers need security of supply (something that the Far East often falls down on). The realisation of quality are becoming key issues in manufacturing and a growing number of consumers here understand the boost to the UK economy to jobs and to the sustainability and ethical sourcing  that ‘Made in the UK’ brings.”
