Zest invests in robust and sustainable supply
Stand 20A40-C41


Glee continues to be a great show for garden furniture and garden structure specialist, Zest 4 Leisure (stand number 20A40-C41) as it unveils new products and a huge new investment in product development capability, environmental initiatives, and robust and sustainable supply.


On day one the company unveiled top new products including its Folding Garden Bar, which is not only supplied ready built and ideally suited to the massive trend for outdoor entertaining, but is also multipurpose, doubling up as a potting table if required and easy to fold away for winter storage.  



Accompanied by the new Tall Vertical Herb Stand, the oriental inspired Cherry Blossom bench, and Easy Build Charlotte Dining set range these additions to the Zest range were only a part of Zest’s product development commitment on show at Glee.  



The company also showcased its £400,000-plus investment in NPD facilities and personnel. 


On day two, Zest shared with its customers an update on its enhanced warehouse management systems and its commitment to sustainable and robust supply.   


 With the Zest 4 Leisure range made from natural slow-grown sustainable FSC® (C114990) timber and crafted for comfort and style using DFMA (design for manufacture and assembly) principles, the company is zealous in its pursuit of consistent supply and using natural resources responsibly.  


Using expertly selected timber from responsibly managed forests, the company is committed to re-planting and nurturing woodland habitat, both for the health of the planet, and to appreciate fully its use of natural materials.  


This year, Zest is collaborating with its main Polish manufacturing partners on a re-planting scheme, while in Wales, Zest is working towards collaborating with environmental organisations on the management of wooded habitats.  


Zest is working with suppliers to reduce packaging and to minimise its carbon footprint across all aspects of the business, as well as re-manufacturing non-standard pallets into new ‘treesaver’ pallets, maximising lifecycle.  The company is also promoting Factory Direct delivery for bulk loads to minimise road mileage and product packaging.
