The Zuza Connection - Issue 1

New Wholesale Catalogue

Fresh off the presses........

After a great deal of work, we have finally completed our more concise catalogue.  The 2018 catalogue is only 24 pages compared with last year’s 40 pages monster.   We have far more graphics in the new catalogue with easy to read product codes.  The new catalogue also includes some of our new product lines, such as the Nelson Mandela Range and our new Marine Animal Range.  We have included information on our Wholesale ordering process, making it easier to buy in bulk.  The catalogue is also available for download on our website: www.zuza-trading.co.uk
