From Sunseeker to Jimmy's Iced Coffee: Dorset's famous brands, who started them and how big they are

Business Digest

If you’ve visited the Daily Echo website in recent days, you’ll have seen a few stories with the word “Premium” next to them.

These stories are premium content designed as a bonus for digital subscribers.

They include news, sport and nostalgia as well as business, and they’re an extra feature on top of the essential coverage that everyone gets for free.

So far, I’ve contributed a lengthy feature based on an interview with the governor of the Bank of England, a look back at the fears raised by businesses in the 2016 EU referendum campaign, and a look at some of Dorset’s most famous brands.

You can view a couple of these articles for free, so I hope you’ll try them and enjoy what you read. Let me know by dropping me an email or connecting with me on Twitter or LinkedIn (where I’m @echodaz).

Until next time, stay safe.
