Expatboxes.com was started in 2001 by staff who lived abroad for 20 years and upon their return to the UK were being constantly e-mailed by expat friends to send them things they missed from the U.K. Therefore they decided to open an internet site to serve the needs of all British expats around the world. Expatboxes.com now under new ownership has continued to develop into a thriving, well known internet business, delivering worldwide all those things the British expat misses from home !!
Expatboxes are full of quality items such as McVitie’s digestive biscuits, Heinz salad cream, Cadbury’s chocolate, PG Tips tea, Walker’s Crisps, Heinz baked beans, HP sauce and other culinary delights, all waiting to be sent on their way to far flung places all over the world. A range of hampers was devised after careful consideration, featuring familiar brand names and labels, designed to provide both the taste and the sight of home. The packaging, too, reflects a patriotic theme – the unique Expatboxes hampers are emblazoned with a Union Jack, a small detail appreciated by Brits living abroad when they open their box! This highly professional team made up of individuals, all having years of extensive experience living in countries and cultures not of their native birth pride themselves on giving their customers personal, efficient service.
