A WARGRAVE-BASED family firm is celebrating its fifth anniversary this month, with a move to larger premises.
Lucy Roberts and her Father Dick Goodall founded Active Silver in March 2016. The company produces Colloidal Silver products to help improve health, skin conditions and ailments in people and animals.
Starting from home to begin with, the company has grown its natural first aid business.
Silver is a natural germ killer, and has been widely used throughout history – as far back as Ancient Greece.
During the pandemic, more residents have been looking for natural antibacterial and antiviral products. As a result, the company expanded its range to include hand cream and an alcohol-free hand steriliser.
Staff member, Liz Deacon, said: “Covid-19 definitely brought challenges for the business, not only an increased appetite for natural products, but also in terms of the logistics of managing a small business with employees who had to juggle home schooling and social distancing.
“The team has risen to the challenge dealing with an increased production and distribution week on week for the past 12 months.”
On Monday, the business held a small, socially-distanced celebration with client, Debbie Mcgee.
“This five-year milestone is very significant for the business,” Ms Deacon said. “The move to new larger premises, increasing production and developing new products in the range, but a time to celebrate also what has been achieved.”
