EPE’s new product launches at The Housewares Show

The EPE team has had a brilliant few days at The Housewares Show hosted by AIS in Solihull.

The show was a brilliant platform to launch lots of new products for 2020 from our brands like the Beko Power Clean Cordless Stick 2 in 1 Vacuum Cleaner to our customers.

The customers attending the show were really impressed with the Beko Power Clean and its fantastic suction power as one of the lightest and most flexible cordless vacuum cleaners launched by EPE strategic brand partners Beko to date. One of the most innovative cordless vacuum cleaners for 2020; the Beko Power Clean is perfect for providing a superior cordless cleaning experience and the high performing HEPA 10 filter helps improve the air quality making it ideal for consumers with allergies.

The customers could also really immerse themselves in a high quality coffee experience, indulging in coffee from EPE’s brand partner Melitta and the new bean to cup coffee machines that we were showcasing on stand, with National Account Manager for Melitta, David Price on hand to answer any questions and give some key insight on the Melitta brand.

Overall, it was a successful few days on stand. The EPE team will be showcasing lots of brilliant new products at more shows in the coming months and we can’t wait to share more of these products from our inspiring brands with our customers.

Fancy a cuppa? Coffee for thought.

The humble teabag has long since been the staple of the average Brit’s kitchen; with any and every occasion is the perfect occasion for a cup of tea. However with the rise of coffee chains and a booming coffee culture; daily coffee consumption has risen from 70 million cups a day in 2008 to a staggering 95 million cups just over a decade later.

While many still drink instant coffee; this new found love of coffee has paved the way for more and more innovative coffee machines so consumers can replicate that barista-style coffee experience at home, because lets face it – buying a coffee everyday gets expensive very quickly.

EPE brand partners Melitta understand the importance of giving consumers the best coffee experience in their own homes.

Nigel Morrison, Consumer & Trade Marketing Manager for Melitta UK explains: “More & more discerning customers are buying high-tech, quality bean to cup and filter coffee machines that not only fit with the minimal fuss-free design of the kitchen but also deliver great tasting coffee at the touch of a button.

Nigel goes on to highlight Melitta’s Purista Bean to Cup, a slimline and practical kitchen appliance with all the modern conveniences thanks to it aforementioned one touch feature; easy cleaning and LED display. There’s more than one way consumers are getting their caffeine fix. Pour over coffee sets are another brilliant range from Melitta; bringing back traditional handmade coffee making methods for the new generation of coffee consumers looking to take their morning coffee to the next level.

On this Nigel states:

“People are starting to think about coffee more like wine – from the origin of the beans, roasting and perfecting the brew – never has it tasted so good.”

Shhh…Quiet Appliances: Revolutionising Modern SDAs

Are quiet appliances the key to appealing to the modern consumer?

The sale of consumer appliances, is predicted to exceed £8.4bn in 2020, up from £8.2bn from last year. These appliances are the backbone of the SDA industry, the bread & butter of the appliance sales sandwich. Competition is indisputable, so getting products noticed is a key factor for many retailers. Thus it is important to stock products that really speak to the needs of the modern consumer.

From an article on quiet appliances in Bira magazine (Jan/Feb 2020):

“In a survey of 3000 UK consumers in April 2019, 71% said that how loud an appliance is when used at home matters. The sound of a home technology product is an important differentiator when it comes to purchasing.”

Think about it. How many times have you put the kettle on or set up your coffee machine first thing in the morning to get your daily pick me up and suffered through the raucous sounds of your SDA’s grumbling away? Not the best way to start the day is it? Your customers feel the same way.

Quiet Mark, the International Consumer Champion Award for quiet high performance appliances are taking strides in tackling the UK’s noise pollution problem. The accreditation makes it simple for consumers to find the quietest appliances in every category.

Our new brand partners Melitta have coffee machines that are proudly accredited with the Quiet Mark award and you can become a stockist of both the Barista TS Smart & the CI Touch and help your customers enjoy that morning cuppa with peace and quiet… at least from their coffee machine! Email or call 0844 800 8055 today for more information.
