Original Products was founded by Ray Spencer in 1952, and began exporting back in the 1960s. Paul, the son of the founder (still working at 91!), says: “We are delighted to win the International Trade Award thanks to the rapid growth of our export sales of drink accessories over the last three years.
“My colleague Jed and I had a lot of encouragement and support from the DIT in that period, which helped us explore new overseas markets from America to Asia.
“It’s been really gratifying that our home bar product selections have been appreciated by so many diverse markets overseas – if we have one thing in common it’s that we all enjoy a drink, so perhaps it’s no surprise our current bestseller is a glass globe decanter!
“Despite global uncertainties we’ve only had optimistic feedback from our retailers abroad, and no concern about continuity of supply after Brexit. I’m confident the British entrepreneurial spirit will see us through!”
