Zoflora welcomes charity partner on factory tour
Linthwaite based pharmaceutical company Thornton & Ross, manufacturer of the UK’s leading disinfectant brand, Zoflora, has welcomed team members from their charity partner Caudwell Children, for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes Zoflora factory tour to see the first bottles of their collaborative charity fragrance Secret Garden roll off the production line.
Caudwell Children is a national charity that provides practical and emotional support to disabled children and their families across the UK.
Trudi Beswick, CEO of Caudwell Children, and Ben Sutcliffe, Director of Executive Projects, enjoyed an extraordinary first-hand experience and tour of the factory accompanied by Vicky Oldroyd, Senior Brand Manager at Zoflora, and the factory team behind the highly-anticipated new fragrance, who demonstrated each step of the production process.
The new Secret Garden fragrance, which has landed in stores around the country this week, is the result of feedback gained from beneficiaries of the charity who attended a focus group at the Caudwell International Children’s Centre and selected their favourite scents which have now formed the fragrance notes.
In a demonstration by the Zoflora team of their commitment to supporting children and young people with autism, 20p from each limited edition pack sold, will be donated to the charity to support disabled children.
Vicky Oldroyd was pleased to meet Trudi and Ben and show them around the facility. As she explained: “We were delighted to welcome Trudi and Ben along to experience the entire manufacturing process of this very special fragrance launch first hand.
“Through the introduction of this innovative product, we hope to drive further awareness of the amazing work that Caudwell Children undertake amongst our loyal fan base, and consequently raise more funds to help them support even more children in the future.”
The fresh and delicate Secret Garden fragrance combines beautiful wild flowers with citrus fruits and a musky base of precious woods, including amber, cedarwood and patchouli.
Trudi Beswick was impressed by the tour. As she enthused: “It’s not every day that you get to see how this kind of product is produced.
“It’s a massive operation and we’re so pleased to be working in collaboration with Zoflora on this initiative, which will not only keep families across the UK safe from harmful bacteria but will also raise vital funds to enable disabled children to get the support that they need to lead happy, active and independent lives.”
Secret Garden is now available in the 250ml range at Sainsbury’s, Asda, Tesco and Morrison’s with a RRP of £2.84.
