At an event at the British Embassy, THE ROYAL TOUCH brand was introduced by Bill Schwartz and Carolyn Robb. The spirit of the brand is of the British Countryside with a touch of aspirational quality and a teaspoon of humor. Schwartz adds, ‘The growth of our brand is due to serendipitous timing; the continuous global media coverage of Britain’s Royal Family, ‘The Crown’ and ‘Downton Abbey’ TV series, and the success of premium British fashion, automotive and entertainment brands…cumulatively speaking.
‘Additionally, as there are many ‘celebrity chefs’ known on a regional basis, Royal Chef Carolyn Robb brings instant credibility and recognition on a global basis. Carolyn’s cookbook has already been published in many territories, including the UK, US, China and Germany and Royal Touch retail cafes are open Asia.
