Bon trading & Co. selling A&MG Sassoon coffee machines?

I stumbled upon an early advert of the Bon Trading Company dated 6th of May 1964.

With an idea in mind (did Bon Trading start selling coffee machines manufactured in the Uk before selling the coffee machines from Brevetti Robbiati?), i rang Mm. Notaras.

Would you believe it... She said she did import some coffee machines from England before Mr. Sassoon forwarded her to Milan.

Not only was that a surprising news... it also explains a detail on Bon Trading's leaflets.

The Coffee machines sold by Sassoon did get the Seal from the British Housekeeping Institute,
look at these 2 different leaflets:

The Bon Trading company, although trading with italian machines in 1965, continued using the seal.
