Made in UK Day 9 March 2022

Posted on March 09 2022

Jennifer Anne Petite is celebrating Made in UK Day on 9 March 2022

As the appetite to shop locally and support local businesses grows, we’re taking part in Made in UK Day on Tuesday 9 March 2022.

The Made in UK Day campaign has been created by Make it British to celebrate their 10 year anniversary.  Started as a blog by ex-retail buyer Kate Hills to champion all the wonderful products that are made in the UK, the Make it British website has now been visited by more than 6.5 million people looking to buy UK-made products and search for UK manufacturers.  This year alone has seen a 68% increase in enquiries since the UK left the EU’s single market and customs union.  

UK manufacturing is currently worth £192 billion to the UK economy and employs 2.7 million people. More than 65 million people live in the UK and if everyone bought just one item made in the UK worth £20 on Made in UK Day it would be worth £1.3billion.

Jennifer Anne make all of our petite clothing range in London. All our petite styles are designed and made in London. By purchasing from UK-made businesses like us you are helping to:

Lower your carbon footprint

Buying products made closer to home means you can significantly reduce the number of miles something has travelled. In turn, this reduces its carbon footprint.

UK-made products are often made in much smaller quantities, too. Many can be made to order, discouraging waste within the supply chain.

Save essential skills 

Manufacturing requires skill. Not everyone suits working in a service-based industry. By purchasing a product that is made in the UK you are helping to save skills within local communities. Skills that would otherwise be lost.

Create job opportunities 

2.7 million people work within manufacturing in the United Kingdom. When you buy a product that is made in the UK you are directly contributing to keeping someone in employment. 

Promote UK craftsmanship 

When you buy a product that is made in the UK you are helping to preserve craftsmanship that has been passed down through generations.

Boost local economies 

Buying locally-made directly contributes to your local economy.

Spend your money wisely and help contribute directly towards the area in which you live.

Preserve UK manufacturing 

If everyone living in the United Kingdom bought just one item made in the UK worth £20 on Made in UK Day it would be worth £1.3bn!

Spend your money wisely and help UK manufacturing to thrive.
