We've launched a Buy British Community – come and join!

New Facebook group for everybody that wants to buy more British-made products


The Buy British Community on Facebook is for anyone that buys British or makes products in the UK – wherever they are based

I know that so many of you are keen to buy british products wherever possible, but one thing that you tell me time after time is that it is difficult to find British products to buy.

So we’ve come up with a solution that might help!

We’ve created an open Facebook group where everyone can share products that they find that are made in Britain!
The group is called the Buy British Community.

Anyone can join the group, wherever they are based, and can post and share pictures of products that they have bought or manufactured that are made in Britain.
And if you are holding an event or a pop-up shop selling British-made goods then you can post that in there too!

We want this to be a community of like-minded people that come together to help each other buy all of the great things that are made here – whether that’s clothes, food, electronics or furniture.
Please join the Buy British Community group and like and share all of the wonderful things that are made here – and don’t forget to read the pinned post which has some of the rules for posting in the group. I know we all hate rules, but we want to make this an enjoyable experience for everyone, and spammers will not be tolerated!

Below is a video that I did announcing the launch of the group live on Facebook.

You’ll find a link to the group on the Make it British Facebook page. Or you can search for the group by looking for Buy British Community in the Facebook search bar. Once on the group page look for the button that says JOIN and you’ll become a member straight away.

So what are you waiting for? Join up now, introduce yourself and start sharing wonderful things that are made in Britain

    If you are promoting Britain, which is a fabulous idea, make sure the union flag is the right way up!!!
    Broad white strip is at the top left of the flag.
    Good luck. Tom

    If Mr Trump can put “America first” then it’s long overdue for the brits to ensure it’s now time to put “Britain first”.
    British products, manufacturing and foods – as an island we should be supporting and buying from our own to sustain ourselves with less reliance on outside support.

    I agree labelling definitely needs clarity. Anything i see now that is made in China – I put back. I’ll go without it, simple as that, aswell as doing my bit to stop filling land fill sites here with cheap tat that lasts a few weeks, if that.

    Buy British guys. Quality always comes first. We did it years ago. We can do it again now!

    There is nothing wrong with buying international traded goods, as GB must always be a trading nation. However, when international trade agreements are ignored, or worse, used as a political tool – as in the case of China, then it is right to be selective in looking for the country of origin. For those of us who consider that trade with China is asymmetric balanced then buyer power can be used. Since the outbreak of Covid-19, whatever purchase I make, I always enquire as to the country of origin…….

    Came upon this site and very pleased to see it. Over recent years my buy British efforts tailed off when I found it difficult at point-of-purchase to identify British-made products (as opposed to just British-labelled; there are scandalous practices of making things look as if they are British-made; Salter is a company that plasters Union Flags over everything but it is all made abroad). Recently, I have been trying harder and using the web to research where stuff I want is made before taking the plunge of a purchase. I am pleased to say that for many things there are some British-made options still available – particularly hand tools – and generally they are of high quality. They may look pricey but they are competitive with other nations’ products; USA, Germany, Denmark, France, Netherlands, Japan, etc. and you do get what you pay for. I am making a determined effort to avoid Chinese stuff. If it is not British I must say that I have a soft spot for Japanese products.
