Yes, absolutely. One of the key things I wanted to get out of the new building was to encourage more interaction between the two parts of the business, i.e. the production staff and everyone else. We had been running with two sites and the business needed to come back together. There people who were in certain parts of the business who hadn’t even met each other. So we wanted there to be a hub where people could interact and meet with other people.
The key areas were the café, being a very open hub for the business in the centre of the building, and the Blendatorium. The Blendatorium is an area which I knew would be used every single day and at all times by a multitude of people. That’s been a very active space for training, meetings, tastings, blendings and creativity.
