Journey

All brands involve a journey and evolve over time and Fresh is no exception. At its core though, the values on which it was first founded still remain. A listen rather than lecture policy, transparency and a passion for creativity not profit. Our new journey, a little like our Adventures, is to be shared and can only work with your support and involvement. So, seize the day and remember the words of Albert Einstein. Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
