Fallen Fruits sees turnover growth

Garden giftware company, Fallen Fruits has reported a 14 per cent growth in turnover year on year for the financial year 2015/16, following a 19 per cent rise for the 2014/15.

A steady increase in sales has led to the company doubling turnover figures within five years.

Managing director Michael Hall said: We have seen a significant increase in sales in the garden centre channel, including massive repeat orders of recently introduced lines, including party products and garden furniture. To keep ahead of the game, we have invested heavily in the warehouse department over the past six months, including the expansion of our pick and pack team. This has led to the reliable and efficient distribution of a record number of products in 2015/16."

The company launched a separate catalogue dedicated to garden furniture for the 2016 season. The company also unveiled its largest ‘shop within a shop’ display installation at Van Hage’s garden centre's flagship store in Hertfordshire last month.

Hall added: " Fallen Fruits has fantastic appeal for both gardening enthusiasts and consumers who just want to enjoy their outdoor space. The new display area at Van Hage is testament to our comprehensive choice of products and really highlights Fallen Fruits as a leading name when it comes to garden giftware."
