Bloom & Grow was born out of necessity... I was a new Mum back in 2003 when my first daughter, Petra, was born and I was filled with many of the familiar anxieties new parents face. I was determined to give Petra the very best but there were few Western brands available in Hong Kong where she was born, and so my shopping was done mostly in the UK and carried back!
After seeing many friends face the same challenge, my husband, Peter, and I were introduced to the founders of the Gro Company in the UK and to cut a long story short we set-up a small scale distribution business to bring Grobags from the UK to Asia for the first time.
Fast-forward 16 years and Petra is now 17 and our small venture has bloomed through organic growth and acquisition into a professional group that spans the Asia Pacific region with offices in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and China, plus staff in the UK and New York.
To help serve our trade customers most effectively we have recently streamlined into two channels: ‘wholesale distribution’ of flagship brands such as SkipHop, Trunki and Ergobaby with whom we have exclusive rights in our territories, and ‘digital distribution’ of a wider range through Bloom-Connect to a myriad of retailers.
Through these channels, we are now able to provide both leading and emerging international brands with turnkey market access to some of the most exciting markets; and for the buy-side, we offer savvy retailers direct access to a carefully curated selection of the very best brands for their stores.
We are very picky about who we work with and we actively look for those who share our core values. We only offer products we personally believe in and we seek fair and equitable relationships with our customers, partners and brands alike.
We believe that ‘building happy families’ provides the best foundation for the next generation of little people to flourish, and in our small way, we hope the products and services we offer help to achieve this.
I look forward to working with you and invite you to Sign Up for a Bloom-Connect account today and adding you to the happy Bloom & Grow family!
With my best wishes for the future,
