B2B appointed as first Official Jarloc Distributor for UK & Ireland

B to B Links Ltd (B2B) and Jarloc manufacturer GCS (GB) Limited today announced the appointment of B2B as its first Official Distributor for Jarloc, the brand new innovative solution to help prevent glass jar candle theft.

Jarloc is a standalone, reusable security device specifically designed to protect glass jar candles from theft. Jarloc provides retailers with the confidence to improve product availability to the consumer through increased shelf stock holding, leading to increased sales, while managing stock loss effectively.

Retailers using Jarloc to protect their candles have seen a significant reduction in customer theft and an uplift in sales turnover. Shoplifters have been deterred and retail managers have regained confidence in merchandising with Jarloc protection in place.

“I’m delighted that we can finally bring an effective solution to those of our customers who have experienced glass jar candle theft”, said Colin Warnock, B2B’s Managing Director. “At B2B our objective is to help retailers boost their profits by tackling theft. Candle jars are notoriously difficult to protect through traditional security tags and labels, and have presented a highly attractive target for thieves as a result. The results of Jarloc in trials have been truly impressive in relation to both shrink reduction and sales growth and we’re very pleased to be able to add this to our range of innovative product protection solutions.”

“Due to the increase in theft of gifts, including glass jar candles, we have been approached by many national security providers wishing to include Jarloc in their Security Tagging portfolios. As part of our distribution strategy, we were very pleased to appoint B2B as the first added value distributor. B2B has an excellent reputation in the main retail sectors we are targeting and has a broad customer base in both Independent and National retailers,” explained Jeremy Davies, Managing Director of GCS (GB) Limited

About Jarloc:

  • Jarloc is produced in a specialist, non-absorbent material to prevent cross contamination of fragrance, allowing it to be freely reused.
  • Jarloc fits neatly inside the jar and locks securely into place, covering the wick to prevent the candle from being used.
  • Jarloc has been designed to allow the fragrance within the wax to pass by and accumulate in the lid as normal.
  • Jarloc is also fitted with the most commonly used security tagging technology for added security.
  • Jarloc is easily released by staff at the point-of-sale and removed for reuse, leaving the candle in perfect condition to present as a gift.
