Ecommerce News Roundup | 27 Jun 2022

An awful lot has happened in the past week so here’s all the best e-commerce news from the past 7 days!


Some might have been shocked this week to hear that Wimbledon and Robinson’s have ended their 86-year-old partnership.

The championships have always been selective about who they are associated with and continue to lead the charge on social responsibility, and by (reportedly) denying Britvic’s wish to promote their other high sugar brands like Gatorade, further showcases their resolve.

Considering the importance of social responsibility and brand purpose to today’s consumers, maybe it’s not such a shock after all…?

Please help others rise. Greatness comes not from a position, but from helping build the future. We have an obligation to pull others up.
