  1. 1. March 2014 Business Overview
  2. 2. The Need “1,127 people die in Bangladesh garment factory collapse.” Reuters, May 2013 “50,000 tons of meat sold as beef found to contain horse DNA.” BBC, April 2013 More shoppers than ever care about the origins of things.
  3. 3. The Opportunity Every product has a story. A journey of people, places and raw materials.
  4. 4. The Opportunity Revealing the stories behind great products can increase sales. For example: Fish suppliers John West revealed the name and picture of the boat used to catch the fish and increased sales by £17m. There are 10 million ethical shoppers that primarily shop online in the UK. 66 per cent of global shoppers prefer products from companies with “programs designed to give back to society”. ABC1 shoppers in the UK alone who self-identify as ethical shoppers, and primarily shop online (source: Touchpoints 2013). The ethical market grew 39% from 2007-2011. Predicted sales growth of 40% between 2012-2016, with the market reaching a value of £76 billion. The e-commerce market in general in the UK has seen high sustained growth of 20% year on year.

  5. 5. The Opportunity Yet when we shop every product page looks exactly the same... There could be a story here!
  6. 6. The Opportunity What if price and colour weren’t our only metrics to explore products?
  7. 7. The Opportunity What if marks and accreditations were in a context where they meant something?
  8. 8. The Opportunity Imagine if all product supply chains were turned into sharable stories...
  9. 9. Presenting Provenance Provenance is the opportunity for makers of great things to be open about the places, processes and materials that make their products great.
  10. 10. Presenting Provenance Share more about the things you make. Know more about the things you buy.
  11. 11.

  15. 15. Now and next "Transparency is one of the most powerful communication tools available for contemporary brands."
