Seaweed Farming: Fuel and food of the future?

Marine plants (seaweed) produce around 80 percent of the oxygen we breathe, meaning if they disappeared from the face of the earth tomorrow, our species would struggle to survive. 

Seaweed is not only a nutritious healthy food for humans  but it also provides a habitat for marine life while the seaweed is growing and is the first link in the aquatic food chain. Without it, the entire system collapses. Growing seaweeds helps take carbon from the oceans preventing ocean warming and reduces ocean acidity as well as giving us a healthy food source.

Redlands Distribution Vision

Mark-Handley-Redlands-Distribution
Mark-Handley-Redlands-Distribution

Redlands Distribution Limited vision is to be the leading international distribution and franchise operator for the UK and Ireland. We are actively looking for International Brands that are interested in entering the UK market.

We successfully launched FAO Schwarz pop-ups in Selfridges Oxford Street, Trafford Centre & Birmingham in November 2018. This was such a success that a 20,000sqft FAO Schwarz flagship is to open on the fourth floor in Selfridges Oxford Street in November 2019. See the press announcements in our news section!

The Discovery products have performed extremely well in Selfridges and will now be available across the UK in a number of established retailers throughout 2019. Discovery #Mindblown (STEM) range is gaining global recognition through its McDonald’s partnership. Redlands Distribution has the exclusive rights for the UK and Ireland and are excited by its potential. Feel free to look through the 2019 product catalogues on the Discovery page and contact us for more information.

The BigPiano was launched in Selfridges in November 2018. Since then it has been used at a number of high-profile events on a hire basis. The BigPiano can be hired on a daily basis and can create a memorable experience for its customers. Ideal for events at shopping malls to enhance customer experience.

Zippy is an established Portuguese childrenswear retail and wholesale chain. It has grown over the years across Spain and Portugal and is now in over 20 countries worldwide. This will be the first time it is available in the UK. Redlands are very excited about its launch in 2019. Watch this space to finds out where and when the first store will open.

The brands above have all happened in our first year of trading! We are constantly looking to expand our portfolio with complementary brands.

We are open to exclusive distribution deals and/or franchise deals.

Please send your company profile to Redlandsretail  to be considered. We look forward to hearing from you.

Our strategy is to take on the distribution rights for International Brands and embed them into the UK market. This will be achieved by using the most effective sales channel in launching each brand into the UK, whether that is e-commerce, concession, wholesale or bricks-and-mortar.

In 2018, Redlands Distribution entered into an exclusive agreement with ThreeSixty Group Limited, a company based out of Hong Kong and the USA, for the exclusive rights of FAO Schwarz for the UK and Ireland.

Redlands launched the first in store partnership with Selfridges on 1 November 2018 at its flagship store in London. This partnership has also extended to their regional stores in Trafford Centre and Birmingham as well as online.

In conjunction with securing FAO Schwarz, Redlands Distribution also secured the exclusive rights for the “iconic” BigPiano distribution across the UK and Ireland.
