Glee New Product Awards 2014: Ones to watch

This year’s new product awards had an array of highly competitive entries. With the winners announced, we caught up with some of the highly commended products and the businesses behind these new arrivals.  

Funky Laundry (Stand 20A29) was set up seven months ago by Nyall Avery and since then the company has gone from strength to strength. The bags, made from 80% recycled material, feature high clarity photographs taken by team members themselves and retail at £6.99. With eight designs ranging from beach pebbles to meadow scenery, the bags offer storage solutions that can be openly displayed in any room.

“There’s no need to hide away our bags because their attractive designs make them ideal for displaying anywhere in the home.” Owner Nyall Avery said. “With seasonal designs, consumers often end up buying more to add to their collections.”

Latvian company Prodeko (Stand 19B56) won the highly commended and green award for their range of Nest 4 Nature indoor and outdoor candles. Made from birch sourced from owner Edijis Ozols’ property, the candles use recycled wax and have a burning time of seven hours.

Garland (Stand 18H10-K11) impressed with their Jumbo Kneeling Pad, developed as a direct result of customer demand for an even larger kneeling pad following the launch of the XL version.  “We had customers putting two XL Kneeling Pads together and asking, ‘Why not make one this big?’, so we did!” said Operations Director Tony Dedman. The Jumbo Kneeling Pad allows users to work five feet without having to adjust the mat, and retails for £9.99

Channel Island Plants scooped the highly commended award for their Petunia Happy Magic Charcoal. A good mixer plant, it flowers non-stop from April and is compact semi upright – ideal for baskets. Petunia Happy Magic Charcoal will be available next year.
