‘Made in Britain’

As part of the STM Packaging Group we have recently become proud members of the ‘Made in Britain’ campaign. Launched in 2011, Made in Britain highlights the importance of British manufacturing and encourages like minded companies to establish a recognised standard to be applied to all products manufactured in the UK. The campaign was launched after research showed that most Brits are baffled when it comes to what products are manufactured in Britain and which are not, around two-thirds (67%) want to see an official seal of approval for British made products, and the majority (52%) think that British companies should bring their manufacturing back to the UK.
