Spotlight on: Build & Grow Co.

Ahead of this year’s International Spring Fair, Buy-From is excited to announce the launch of Buy-From Britain which will present nine new and growing independent businesses at the event. 

One of those nine is Build &, an extension of the umbrella organisation, Grow Sow Simple. Based in Gateshead, the business is now entering its fifth year of trading. We caught up with Stuart Kirby from Build & to chat about the business and to hear his thoughts ahead of the Spring Fair.

Stuart says, “This company aims to provide affordable, engaging products for the consumer with the objective of making growing fresh herbs and vegetables easier, simpler and more fun!”

Build &’s products are widely accessible, appealing to the whole family.“Our product range is designed to cater to as much of the market as possible,” says Stuart. He adds that their products aim to “[make] growing as engaging and as fun as possible for children whilst also helping simplify the plant-to-plate process for all ages.”

Ahead of exhibiting at the Spring Fair, Stuart says the business is excited by “the chance to show [their] exciting new range to a variety of different customers in attendance at the fair and gather reactions.” Build & have exciting future plans to “grow our product and client portfolio, whilst also looking to enter overseas markets”.

And, as the company expands, their central values remain at their heart: “We never want to lose our priorities of creating engaging ‘grow your own’ products [and] being as eco-friendly within our products and company operations as possible.”

Build & will be exhibiting at the International Spring Fair with Buy-From Britain from 3-7 February.
