We are delighted to agree a partnership with BGF. We have grown our business substantially since founding it in 2009, and it was hugely important to us that we found a partner which would support us to drive the next phase of growth whilst maintaining the culture and brand which we love. We have found this in BGF, and we are excited about realising our future plans for the business together.
