Prepared and positive

-

Scottish outdoor clothing brand Meander Apparel says preparatio­n for the end of the transition period is key.

“For us, it’s getting all the paperwork in place so we’re prepared for different situations,” she explains.

“We’ve had to ensure we comply with new garment labelling rules, such as adding the country of origin and CE markings – which show that they meet EU health and safety standards.”

In spite of the changes, Jill is confident about the future. Her sustainabl­e garments lend themselves well to the outdoors and since the start of the pandemic, sales have soared. “We feel positive and we’re going to keep doing what we’re doing,” she says.
