We’ve waited a while to announce this, but we’re delighted to say that Don Gaucho is now sitting proudly on one of the UK’s leading retailers’ shelves: Marks & Spencer (M&S). With over 1,330 stores worldwide selling to 33 million customers through 852 UK stores and online, you can imagine how thrilled we were when we received that call!
During the Speciality & Fine Food Fair we attended last September, just before we were about to pack up and go, celebrating a great day at the fair amongst ourselves, I had a conversation with a lady about our products, how they were new to the UK and she told me how much she loved Dulce de Leche and how the brand she worked for did too. To cut a long story short, the product spoke for itself, she took away some mini-samples and my card and I honestly didn’t expect to hear anything more. Fast forward a few months of planning and organising, Don Gaucho’s hand made artisan Dulce de Leche hit the shelves last week.
Thanks to the Speciality & Fine Food Fair, to Holly Shackleton for the great review of our Dulce de Leche post-show and to all those that have supported and helped us, and in any way been involved in getting Don Gaucho off the ground in the UK.
