Working With Food Platters

After two and a half years of solid posting, it’s been weird to have left this site alone for so long. But I’ve had a great time doing new and exciting things all over the web!

And I thought it was time to give you a little update.

My focus has been on getting myself organised in my new role marketing several businesses, and it’s been a learning curve for me, and quite fascinating because of that. Working with people who are not only at the cutting edge of retail, but are also at the top of their game has been challenging and rewarding.

I’ve talked quite a bit about Booost Oxygen, so for today’s post I though I’d fill you in on another of the group’s businesses:

The Platter Company


The Platter Company does exactly what you might expect – we make food platters! Platters for parties, business meetings, weddings and any other occasion where people might need food. Ours are a bit special:

  • They are hand made using the freshest ingredients
  • They are delivered in our patented boxes, which keep them fresh and properly arranged
  • They’re incredible value for money, typically costing less than £5 a head

We currently sell them through Tesco, and people can order them from the customer services desk in participating stores.

As we’re new to the market, we’re researching a high proportion of clients to understand their buying and eating experience, and I get copied on all the feedback. I’ve been blown away by how impressed people are! I can’t wait to get to UK in a few weeks time to try some for myself.

My main task with The Platter Company is to really build up a brand presence through social media. So far, I’ve created a blog and a Facebook page, as well as a Twitter account which is simply a feed (I’ll be using my own Twitter account to promote the business most of the time.)

I’d be very happy for any of you to feedback thoughts or observations in comments below about the sites, which you can see here:
