For those who are establishing their own grassland businesses, registering with local councils and obtaining hygiene certificates, Facebook marketing can be disruptive. Jodie Robertson began The Happy Platter Company came out of his London home at the beginning of the epidemic when a colleague, a trained 25-year-old cook, was fired. Robertson sells his boxes via his website, not a social networking site, and says he finds out why people buy and sell feed boxes on Facebook, and he can also see when they are wrong.
“I understand why people [sold them] “In closing, I do not give anyone a hard time, it was a difficult time for most people,” says Robertson. . I think it’s very difficult for any customer to go and do this, “he says.
Robertson’s partner makes a lot of stuff in the boxes himself, including dips, jams, and chutneys, as well as cakes and cookies. Robertson says several local cats started their own business, though many quit after realizing it wasn’t as easy as it seems. “I think it would be easier if you bought cheap, unpretentious cookies in the Amazon and went to Lidl to buy things and put them away,” he says, explaining that there were “hidden costs,” such as getting a messenger and a refrigerator. van, find a cheese seller, and put extra storage in their house. “We now have several refrigerators in our house,” she laughs.
Robertson says he believes people buy wood and boxes because they want to post their pictures online. Most of its clients are women, especially those in their late twenties, although they have had a full-time client in the sixties. “I think popularity is that it’s Instagrammable,” he says. Florence Swift, a 30-year London-based founder Garner & Graze, works outside the studio where they have permission to make everything from bagels to banana bread from scratch. He also sells through the website instead of just chatting, and says that 80 percent of his clients during the closure were sending boxes as gifts to friends.
“It was a big birthday, ‘I wish we were together,’ so many people send their newborn friends. Sometimes it was just like, ‘I know everything is bad right now so I believe this makes you happy,’ he says. Like Robertson, Swift says most of her clients are women, and her male clients often buy boxes from their girlfriends or sisters. Swift says that when she started her business in 2019, she only knew two other breeding companies in London. “And then with the closure, there are so many now, and crazy.”
