MORRISONS has announced that over 1,000 food and drink companies have applied to its Growing British Brands programme since its launch earlier this year.

In May, Morrisons offered British entrepreneurs a fast-tracked route to a national market through the launch of our Growing British Brands programme.

It gives emerging British businesses the potential to sell products in stores as well as listings in other parts of the business including and wholesale channels like Amazon.

To support successful applicants we’ve assembled a team of our in-house experts to help with advice and support covering every aspect of retailing, from production to packaging and marketing and logistics.

Winny’s Kitchen is the latest brand to launch its Jerk sauce, which is available in Morrisons condiment aisle.

Darren Smith, senior sourcing manager at Morrisons, said: “We’re a huge supporter of British food making but we know that getting an idea to market can be a complicated process and some companies need some help to get there. Through our Growing British Brands programme we have been able to spot exciting brands like Winny’s Kitchen and its delicious Jerk sauce.”
