023 – Sian Reekie, The Hettie Trading Co. – My Manufacturing Journey

I’m delighted to welcome long-standing Make it British member Sian Reekie of The Hettie Trading Company to this podcast. Sian is a chemist by trade, but has set up a lifestyle business making accessories for both humans and dogs which she runs with other members of her family.

In this interview Sian talks about her experience as someone who set up a UK-made brand without any previous experience in the manufacturing industry. 

She has some great advice for anyone else thinking of doing the same, including what the biggest challenge was when launching a British-made product business.
