Not content with becoming one of the most prominent and successful retail seed brands in the UK, Mr. Fothergill's has also established successful long term overseas retail trade businesses. In total, Mr. Fothergill's now export seeds to no less than 25 nations worldwide. These include regions/countries as diverse as Eastern, Northern, Central and Southern Europe, Australia, The Republic of Ireland, Russia, Canada, India, Japan, The Far East and the Caribbean.
Our single most successful market is Australia, where Mr. Fothergill's Seeds Pty Ltd (a joint venture formed 20 years ago and now a wholly owned subsidiary) claims a market share in excess of 50%. Our seeds can be found for sale through Bunnings, Kmart, Big W and Danks stores, not to mention hundreds of reputable independent garden centres and nurseries.
Via our exclusive distributor based in Edmonton, Alberta, Mr. Fothergill's has gained nationwide distribution in major retailers throughout Canada, including Home Depot, Canadian Tire and Lowes, plus many hundreds of independent garden centres and nurseries.
Mr. Fothergill's Seeds are increasingly sown on Russian dachas, thanks to a partnership with a Moscow based garden products supplier. Such exposure to the Russian market has also presented opportunities for the company in The Ukraine, Belarus & Kazakhstan.
For those larger markets in which it operates, Mr. Fothergill's tailors the varieties offered to suit the climatic or growing conditions and local tastes. For example all packets sold in Australia have been created with local conditions in mind; Russian packets are printed in Cyrillic and Canadian variants are bilingual English/French.
With a dedicated UK based export sales, marketing and technical team, our intention is to offer overseas partners the very same superior levels of product quality and customer care that consumers and retailers in the UK have come to expect from Mr. Fothergill's.
