Orange Smarty was launched in 2013 by media executive Karen Young, who has some 20 years of experience in international distribution. Four years later, the Brighton-based independent was named the UK’s fastest-growing distribution company by Broadcast Magazine and repeated this again the following year.
Specialising in factual content, including specialist factual, popular factual and factual entertainment, Orange Smarty’s team offers a flexible, personalised service to its growing stable of producer-partners and multi-platform broadcast clients.

Orange Smarty represents over 1200 hours of content and in 2018 launched a formats arm

Young says “I wanted to start a business that embraced my passion for customer service, a company whose emphasis was on communication and where service was our driver and sales our results. I wanted to create an environment which offered flexibility, where people felt we were actively working with them and not just alongside”

And another thing:

Smarties are a popular coloured chocolate sweet in the UK, each of the smarties contain milk chocolate except the Orange Smartie which is made with orange-flavoured chocolate,  making it different from the rest and some say the best!
