A Ray of Hope in Cambodia
Nabco donated to Forest Town Church in St Albans to support their partners in Cambodia. The Church has a team that goes to Cambodia every year to support Bunna Yin and the Daughters of Cambodia. Bunna Yin is a church founder in rural Cambodia who helps and supports the local community through training and education.
This donation is another example of how Nabco is supporting communities to make a real change in people’s lives. Daughters of Cambodia empowers those trapped in the sex industry to walk free and start a new life, with healing, dignity, and the means to prosper. This is achieved by providing jobs coupled with recovery programs. The girls are taught how to sustain their new lifestyles in non-institutional settings so that they are able to remain connected to their communities and families.

Nabco with Modern Expo at Euroshop 2023
Euroshop 2023 was a magnificent four days of retail phenomenon! Modern Expo SPRING IS COMING pavilion was a marvel with the store of the future exhibiting modern inventions; such as Micromarkets, Parcel lockers, Self-checkouts and A-rated energy-saving refrigerators, a media hall featuring behind-the-scene actions, a cosy restaurant serving delicious food and drinks and enchanted visitors with blooming magnolias to welcome SPRING, the season of inspiration and new beginnings.
Team Nabco welcomed visitors from all over the world. Just as there were many smiles and greetings, there were new opportunities, affiliations and passages of networks that bloomed with every visitor. Soon, with these new connections, we will be venturing into new markets. We were privileged to be a part of Modern Expo’s mission of introducing Modern retail to the world. Together, we accomplished this mission impressing all our visitors. Most importantly, what mattered to us most was that our partnership with Modern Expo was further strengthened in friendship and solidarity by functioning together as one team. Moreover, we were awarded the Best Marketing Award for our unique marketing. We thank Modern Expo for accepting us as their own and allowing us to be one with them.
Nabco begins 2023 – Another chapter of a beautiful journey of growth, innovation and excitement
Reflecting on the year 2022,
It was a year of achieving milestones, facing new challenges, welcoming new talent, expanding our portfolio and receiving new customers. Another year of success and growth.
In pursuit of enhancing the customer experience in the UK and Ireland markets, we launched the complete retail solution, highlighting the Nabco difference in the market. In this second consecutive year of phenomenal growth, we thank our long-standing customers and partners for their loyalty of continuous trust and support towards us.
A significant highlight was that our partnership with Modern Expo grew from strength to strength despite the affliction of war in their homeland. They continued to innovate, manufacture and deliver regardless of the hardships they faced. We found confidence and assurance in their bravery. In support of the Ukrainian refugees, team Nabco successfully organised a charity run and raised funds as humanitarian aid. The senior management of Modern Expo flew in from Ukraine and participated in the event further concealing our relationship. We are more than partners working together towards the same mission. Moreover, we will be representing the brand together at the World’s No.1 Retail Trade Fair, Euroshop 2023, in Dusseldorf, Germany.
Another partnership we uphold dearly is with our Marketing Agency, Future.i Their contribution to creating brand awareness with a strong digital presence played a vital role in our growth.
With growth came responsibility. We are proud to say that we are an organisation committed to sustainable development. We have reduced the use of plastic and paper with initiatives in the progress of becoming a paperless organisation. We also introduced a range of eco-friendly natural R290 propane refrigerants that meet EU energy efficiency requirements.
In light of the world’s economic crisis, we have committed ourselves to provide sustainable support to a Children’s orphanage in Sri Lanka for the well-being of the children and their financial needs.
We made history by becoming the first-ever platinum sponsor of one of the premier school rugby teams in Sri Lanka, St. Peter’s College rugby. This was a proud moment for us to be able to become a supporting arm for the team with more than finances. We look forward to many opportunities arising from this sponsorship.
We believe 2023 will be the biggest and greatest year to date in the history of Nabco. Our newly appointed sales and propositions director, Steve Gell, initiated the launch of a new customer-led proposition to the market. With new, modern and innovative products on our portfolio, we are not just part of major tenders in the UK and Ireland, but also in the process of exploring opportunities that have come to us from outside of the UK from different continents.
We are pressing forward with new plans for the new year by updating our website to a modern and state-of-the-art which will exhibit the complete retail solution and our company culture. We also introduced advanced systems to increase efficiency and invested in growth and development to empower our team.
Our team is the strength of Nabco. A team of industry specialists with exceptional skill sets. Every single one plays a huge part in the growth and development of the business. Their passion and commitment are second to none. They value and support each other to bring the best version of themselves in everything they do. As their leader and managing director, I couldn’t be more proud and thankful to each one of them.
In conclusion, I take pride in the vision I had when I took over as Managing Director of Nabco which was to build and establish a strong and successful company with a significant difference in the industry, offering first-class products and solutions with excellent customer service and empowering the team to reach their potential with high-flying careers. Even as I write this, I cannot help but feel a sense of achievement as we are not far from the path of making this vision a reality.
We are different. We are Agile. We are a team. We are a Family. We are Nabco.
We are a proud member of POPAI!
POPAI UK & Ireland is a progressive industry association, promoting best practices, and dedicated to enhancing the total shopper experience, a behaviour embedded in the DNA of Nabco. We believe that this membership will further strengthen our commitment to being a customer-focused business while delivering the Nabco Difference of offering a customer-led proposition to the world.
Nabco made history!
We made history by becoming the first-ever platinum sponsor of one of the premier school rugby teams in Sri Lanka, St. Peter’s College rugby. For nine decades since the inception of rugby at the College, we had the honour of being the first brand to be displayed at the front of the team players’ jerseys. This was a proud moment for us to be able to become a supporting arm for the team with more than finances. We look forward to many opportunities arising from this sponsorship. Well wishes to the St. Peter’s College Rugby Team for a successful season!
