This refrigeration container has complimented the business’s investment of a 6000L brewing tank. This has increased capacity by 40% which equates to approximately 130,000 pints a year. The business has recently seen strong growth in their e-commerce sales which has boosted an increase in sales this year.
Jeeva Sanmugam, Managing Director of Classic Cuisine Limited, reached out to the Manufacturing Growth Programme (MGP) for help to promote the Classic Cuisine brands in a highly competitive marketplace and ensure that its unique attributes were effectively communicated and consistently promoted.

The project included the design of a new ecommerce platform from which the company can showcase and sell their products, creating user journeys and interactions that enhance the buying experience, improve engagement with the end consumers and drive awareness of the Hobson’s brand. It will also help to drive foot traffic to offline sales at the taproom, through the promotion of special offers and events throughout the year.
