KAS Sixth Form Young Enterprise Success

 

KAS sixth form students participating in the UK's Young Enterprise Company Programme have enjoyed a very successful week as they start to grow their business in the run up to Christmas. The company is called Calore - Italian for warmth - and their distinctive range of products are eco and vegan candles: Christmas Spice, Christmas Pudding, Pine and Peppermint, Mulled Wine and Vanilla. At Winscombe Christmas Market this week they sold 75% of their stock with Christmas Spice being their best seller; they are now rapidly manufacturing more candles in time for the Christmas season. Calore are led by Managing Director Sasha Moores and her successful team includes Sales Director Tom Sala-Rich, Administration Officer Leanne Thomas and Finance Assistant Michael Hainsby all of whom attended a Dragons' Den event at the Taunton School this week: Calore are now building on the advice received from the Dragons including selling their products online under the leadership of IT Director Thomas Nullmeyers.

 

Calore are hoping to sell their candles in the Burham area very shortly so look out for their professional brand as you all shop for Christmas presents
