National Pet Month 2014

April is National Pet Month 2014!

 

Throughout the week of 7-11 April The Kerfoot Group are celebrating National Pet Month & revealing some surprising information about how the Kerfoot Group might be involved in your pet’s care. You may not be aware that not only do we supply our high quality oils to the human food industry; we also have a large customer base of pet food manufacturers.

A Massive Leap in Cruelty-Free Cosmetics

The Kerfoot Group is proud of our ethical approach and corporate responsibility is integral to everything we do. Our policy of sustainability ensures that we minimise our environmental impact throughout our product lifecycle from sourcing through production to delivery. We are also (as anyone who read the blog about our Xmas dog photo competition will know) firm believers that animals are our friends and as such are staunchly against animal testing in any form.

We welcome the recent

Cruftsmas

As well as food, we have another obsession at the Kerfoot Group, and that is our dogs! We are pretty much all dog mad here and so we just had to have a fun competition to celebrate Christmas, and we called it…Cruftsmas. We asked for photographs of pet pooches all dressed up in their most Christmassy outfits and accessories.

We had some fantastically cute and funny entries, everything from several dogs wearing antlers to a German Shepherd dressed as Father Christmas, complete with

The 12 Smells of Christmas

If like me you enjoy hand making Christmas presents then why not try making your own soap, fragrance or massage oil to give to that special someone? If you’re a retailer looking to add that holiday vibe to your products but are a little stumped, fear not we are here to help. So go grab a cuppa and a biscuit (don’t worry we won’t tell), relax and enjoy.

Your sense of smell has a direct extension to the brain. Its direct contact means we get a very quick, very intensive reaction

Festive Flavours from The Kerfoot Group

Christmas is fast approaching, and warming Christmas foods will no doubt be on most people’s minds. It’s the time of year that we can all over indulge on our favourite foods, and we don’t have to worry about the consequences until January… well at least we can keep telling ourselves that! We particularly associate Christmas with the smells and tastes of Cinnamon and this happens to be one of the many flavoured oils that The Kerfoot Group offer.

From Russia with Love

Greetings from the Speciality Sales Team, writing from Domodedovo Airport, Russia.

The Kerfoot Commercial teams have certainly been busy with recent exhibitions in Warsaw, Frankfurt, Moscow and not forgetting Coventry.

Our brief trip to the Russian capital was just long enough to further cement our relationships with current and potential customers, whilst constantly learning how to continue supplying this part of the world in the most efficient way. Logistics, language and

What’s Your Flavour?

It’s time for the Kerfoot Speciality update and oil of the month!

Bonfire night has been and gone and Christmas is only around the corner. The weather is changing and there is nothing better than sitting in front of a roaring fire with a bowl of smokey roasted vegetables and a good Yorkshire cup of tea. This leads us nicely on to our flavour of the month!

Oils for Autumn

The leaves are falling and the weather is turning cooler. We’re digging out the scarves and woolly hats, in fact every member of staff at the Kerfoot Group has been given a branded beanie to get them through the Winter and keep all heads warm at upcoming bonfires and fireworks displays. There are plenty of oils that will keep you feeling warm and cosy in the cold weather and to compliment the rich autumnal colours of golden leaves and crisp blue sky.

The Smelling Zone

The Kerfoot Group team thought they would get in touch with their senses and learn more about Kerfoot Speciality Oils. We converted one of the Chill-Out areas towards the back of the office at The Olive House into The Smelling Zone!

We displayed a collection of Essential Oils, Fragrances and other speciality products with a variety of odours and scents, for us all to look at and smell. The range of oils included some with very strong fragrances and others which were

The tale of the Black Soap in half a coconut

I have been referred to in the last week as the ‘rookie’ of the business and although I am not the latest addition to The Kerfoot Group team one of my colleagues still sees me as the ‘junior’. As I am just the wrong side of 29 I take this happily. With this ‘junior’ name you’d think that I get left with all the rubbish jobs but this one was not. Here is the tale of me and my bar of black soap in half a coconut…..
