Inside the new exhibition vehicle

Marriages, the pet and smallholding feed company, is taking to the road in a show truck to meet all the customers it may have missed due to show cancellations.

The new truck has been kitted out with its bird-care brands, Honeyfields and RSPB. The specially-designed exhibition vehicle is filled with samples of Honeyfield’s new range of hardware, from feeders and dining stations through to the range of bird tables launched for this season. There is also an area dedicated to the RSPB brand of bird care, which is distributed and packed by Marriages.

The truck has been designed with social distancing in mind, with one member of the expert Marriages team on hand to help one visitor at a time.

Sam Marriage, owner of Marriages Millers, said of the new roadshow: “We were planning for there to be no Glee exhibition this year and began putting plans in place to keep our customers safe while ensuring they are able to see our ranges for the 2020/21 season.

“Throughout the covid-19 situation, safety and supply has been our priority. We know how precious our customers’ time is and we don’t want them to waste any of it in long car journeys to visit us – so we will visit them!”

The Honeyfields’ brand on show became the first supplier of Fair to Nature bird seed in the UK. This accreditation is only given where companies commit to using cereals and other seeds grown on Fair to Nature farms, where the ingredients allow. This means that Honeyfield’s Wild Bird Food not only feeds the birds in the garden but also looks after the birds in the countryside.

Sam continued: “In today's modern world, 61% of consumers say they’re likely to switch to a brand that is more environmentally friendly than their current brand. So, our commitment to reducing waste and providing Fair to Nature products truly resonates with the consumer.”
