Natural grooming products for men

Founders: Rhodri Ferrier, Simon Duffy
Website: www.meetthebulldog.com

Former city workers Rhodri and Simon were fed up with the corporate world and decided they wanted more of an entrepreneurial lifestyle. The pair launched their range of natural grooming products for men in 2007 after six months of consultation with buyers at Sainsbury’s. Currently only stocked in that particular chain, the range of hair care, shaving products and moisturisers is on course to turnover around £500,000 in its first year. Keen to build up sales with the supermarket, the guys from Bulldog have told us to watch this space as they carve out their niche in the male grooming industry.
