The original VegTrug has now sold more than 1 million units worldwide and has become an iconic design.

This business networking event will be held at Vegtrug’s UK distribution centre in Colchester, Essex. It includes an exclusive tour of the VegTrug warehouse, a presentation by CEO Joe Denham with a Q&A session and quality networking to help your business grow.

Joe regularly mentor’s new businesses within his industry and beyond, often giving his time freely, particularly helping to train new salespeople and advise on export sales strategies. Don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to hear about Joe's experience and knowledge!

Joe Denham, CEO of VegTrug Ltd; the Managing Director of VegTrug GmbH and The CEO and President of VegTrug USA Inc. Joe is also Chairman of the Board at Gardenex, the Export Trade Association representing British garden product manufacturers. Joe, together with his business partner Paul Owen started VegTrug in 2009 and it has proven to be a massive success in the garden industry. Now exporting to 22 countries, the business has recently opened a US subsidiary based in Pennsylvania to support sales efforts in America and a second subsidiary in Germany. The VegTrug is a product which appeals to young children, the elderly and everyone in between! It is fair to say that the development of the VegTrug business has helped shape people’s attitude to growing their own food and in some small way contributed to the ‘grow your own’ revolution that has continued to gather momentum over the last 12 years.
