Sector turns to retailing to diversify income and products

Over the past couple of years we have started to see some exciting new developments in social enterprise retailing — both  in new social enterprise shops opening, and in the production of goods for retail.

This new trend towards retailing widens the market for social enterprise, creates opportunities for inter-trading and helps give a much needed boost to the public profile of social enterprise. It is very much to be welcomed.

We want to provide a bit of extra exposure for these new social enterprise retailers and suppliers and have created a new Social enterprise retailing page to do this.

It’s still very much a work in progress, so if you’re a social enterprise retailer or producer and want to be featured here send mail to Alun Severn.

Some of these retailers are actively looking for additional suppliers, so take a look — they may be looking for your goods right now.
