UK Paper Bag Lanterns Ltd Adds Ethics To Its Company Strategy At The Cost Of Profits.
A Scottish business owner based in Thailand selling paper candle bag lanterns amongst other things, trying to do the right thing.
In today’s world where everything is about profits, margins, ROI, cost cutting and cheap labour, it may well be assumed that in order to run a successful business all of the above must be the pillars of that success.
“Not necessarily” says Oliie Brodie of (UKPBL),UK Paper Bag Lanterns Ltd, a Scotsman who moved his head office to Thailand from where he runs his UK and Australian online wedding and party supplies stores. “It all depends how you define successful”.
Having shipped over 40,000 orders in the few short years since the website The Australian Paper Bag Lanterns Store was launched, Ollie does not believe that the primary focus should be on ‘the numbers game’.
