New name for Bord na Mona retail in UK
The UK retail arm of Bord na Mona is to be re-named The Greener Gardening Company from 1 February.
The division comprises Bord na Mona Horticulture, Bord na Mona UK and White Moss Horticulture and will continue to be a wholly owned subsidiary of Bord na Mona Ireland.
Steve Harper, head of commercial and marketing, says the name change will make the brand easy to recognise for UK consumers.
The company’s new Happy Compost peat-free range has been well received by the trade and was given a ‘best in test’ performance rating in trials at University College of Dublin
The name change does not cover the current Bord Na Mona Horticulture business in Ireland or affect UK trade customers who trade directly with it.
