“Kids still want favourite characters on products”

Spearmark’s Alex Bloom on delivering product at prices that make sense for everyone in the chain.

It’s the start of a new year, one which could potentially bring some serious changes to the way business is done in our industry.

“Our key challenges for 2019 will all stem from dealing with the repercussions of Brexit.

Despite the current economic uncertainty, we know that kids still want products that feature their favourite characters, so our job is to work even more closely with our suppliers, licensors and customers to ensure that we can provide them with great looking product at prices that make sense for everyone involved in the chain.”
