How did Oyster come to be? It all started in December 2015 to fill a need for sustainable promotional merchandise. The current market size is $2 billion in Canada and branded merchandise is a tangible way for companies to communicate their brand and their values.
Jane Mitchell (Principal, Oyster Promo) believed there was an opportunity to make a difference and help companies think about their purchases (and how they represent their brand) in a different way.
After working in marketing and communications for many years, and for a sustainable mutual fund company, Jane saw an opportunity for organizations to use promotional products to help build their brand in an eco-friendly way. 'Business has to be central to delivering the change we need.’ And Oyster has set out to do just that.
