South West Bedfordshire MP, Andrew Selous, visited the Leighton Buzzard based and multi award winning wine company “The Online Tasting Company” last week. The Online Tasting Company are experts in small wine portions and package wines into ultra-lightweight 100ml ecoSIP containers.
By using ecoSIP containers the company reduces the cost and carbon footprint of their product while delivering the same quality of wine as a traditional glass of wine. It is a great way to try new wines before committing to buying a full bottle.
Since 2020, The Online Tasting Company has shipped more than 750,000 wine portions and made more than 5,000 wine advent calendars. They are suppliers to Naked Wines, Laithwaites and The Wine Society, among many others.
Speaking after Andrew Selous MP said,
"It was a real pleasure to visit this Leighton Buzzard business which has massive growth potential and huge export opportunities. It was really good to see how they are significantly reducing their carbon footprint compared with their competitors and I will work with them to help them expand and seize the opportunities which are available to them. It is businesses like this, whose success will enable us to raise the taxes to pay for so much of what we care about."
