Opening a new business

Advice needed!

Hi everyone

We are planning to move back to Sweden this year (we have lived in the UK for the past 4 years - I am English and my partner is Swedish) and I am seriously considering starting my own business (small English bakery/confectionery shop). I know I have a lot of hard work and serious research ahead of me, but could anyone give me any pointers with regards to exporting British products? I am assuming that I will need to export them from the UK and that there aren't any wholesalers in Sweden than can provide British products? Does anyone have any experience or advice as to where to start looking? Again, I appreciate that I need to do a whole lot of research myself but it might help if I can be pointed in the right direction!

Many thanks!

Hi Chris

Thanks for your response! biggrin.gif Yes, I am aware of the English Shop (and you are right, it is in Stockholm and also Göteborg), and have considered maybe a franchise with them (however, they are quite slow and not very forthcoming in offering information). I was wondering more about how I would go about ordering British products blink.gif
