2015: We're already convinced that in 10 years' time, wine connoisseurs will sigh that this was 'a great year'. Historians with hair sprouting wildly from their nostrils will argue that this was the year in which the future began. And if they don't, we will. Because 2015 will go down in Dopper history as the year we stopped playing with our dolls and grew up. Well, that is to say: the company did - not the employees. After five years, our fight against single-use plastic and for clean drinking water has seriously taken shape. We sold as many as 1,341,890 Doppers. That's about twice as many as the 727,742 we sold the year before, almost doubling our turnover from € 3,959,595 in 2014 to € 7,079,787 in 2015. We sold the Doppers through our web store, of course, but also through the 550 Dopper sales outlets. We pushed three more pins into our map of the world, because in 2015 we also conquered Germany, Brazil and Denmark (bloodlessly, of course). In addition, we shipped our Doppers to 24 different countries and set a tentative first foot ashore in the US. At our Haarlem office, we suddenly needed to divvy up the Tony Chocolonely-chocolate between 27 hungry mouths, instead of the 18 mouths of the previous year. Of course, this meant all our employees are now at least 0.0001 stone less overweight.
Now, all these figures may be great, but nobody reads a math book for their entertainment. That's why we've molded our annual figures into a swell new-fangled video-report (in full color)!
