New product from Norfolk Industries supports people with disabilities
Independence Matters is excited to announce the launch of a new, innovative product from Norfolk Industries, its Norwich-based factory which provides employment opportunities for people with disabilities and recycles waste material to make pet bedding.
The new animal house product will be packaged by volunteers with disabilities and sold alongside the company's existing range of products. The houses are designed for colouring in (non-toxic pencils provided) and are available in two sizes - small (suitable for hamsters, gerbils, rats and mice) and medium (suitable for guinea pigs, small rabbits, chinchillas and ferrets). Each house comes packed with additional goodies, including a bag of the factory’s own Snooze flaked paper bedding, with prices starting from £2.32 to wholesalers.
Norfolk Industries Manager, Sharon Tooke said: “It’s wonderful to be able to diversify into new product lines and these are a very cute addition. Aimed at children (who statistically own small animals) the houses are designed to encourage inclusion between pets and children, provide an activity for children and also to offer a suitable environment for their pet. Our bedding is also provided in the pack as well as apple chew twigs and a mineral block.
“These products also provide an alternative range of work activities to people looking to develop their work skills generally, but who may not be ready or able to work on our manufacturing production lines."
