British Corner Shop is a leading international exporter of British food products with a global customer base who shop the site’s range of over 6,000 household brands.
With travel restrictions in place over the last 18 months, the platform has experienced a surge in demand for its products, and the launch of M&S is anticipated to drive this further.
The launch is part of Marks’ commitment to accelerating international growth through online channels and follows its recent expansion of flagship websites, which offer localised clothing & home ranges to customers in over 100 different markets.
In May the retailer committed to more than doubling online retail sales by working with partners and expanding the reach of the business to new online markets for the first time, as increasing numbers of customers globally turn to digital shopping channels.
Marks & Spencer managing director of international Paul Friston said: “Our mission is to deliver efficient and low-cost ways to sell the best of M&S to the world, and by partnering with British Corner Shop we’re able to instantly offer the best of M&S food to millions more customers.
“We’re always getting asked when our fantastic food range is going to be rolled out to new markets, so I’m delighted that from today we’re able to offer an expansive and delicious range of hero products customers love as well as the latest M&S innovations to over 150 new countries.”
British Corner Shop managing director Mark Callaghan said: “British Corner Shop connects quality British brands to customers worldwide, which is why partnering with M&S, one of the most iconic British brands, is a perfect fit for both parties.
“Our customers are not just British expats but other nationals who appreciate the quality assurance they get from buying British made products. So, not only will our expat customers be overjoyed they can now reunite with their most missed M&S foods, but our non-expat customers will no doubt rejoice as well.”
