UK manufacturer of cleaning and laundry care products, Minky, has won its first contact in France to supply French supermarket group Leclerc.

Minky said the deal to distribute ironing and laundry care products, including ironing boards and covers, as well as rotary and indoor airers, could see listings for Minky across Leclerc’s 500-strong estate.

European sales manager at Minky, Chris Churm said: “We have done a tremendous amount of work adapting our products and packaging to meet the market requirements and this work should stand us in good stead for developing business with the other multiples in France.”
