Made in Britain member MUGGI is a small Kent-based company that makes plastic drinks trays for use in places as diverse as ocean-going yachts and old people’s homes. "I’m patriotic," says David Trotter, Muggi’s founder. "I want to make things in Britain and to export."
These sentiments are behind Muggi’s membership of Made in Britain, a business organisation promoting UK production. The group encourages its 900 members to share ideas in such areas as marketing, and spans sectors from drilling equipment to artificial grass.
