Exhibiting at Speciality & Fine Food Fair

This week we exhibited at our very first trade fair, the Speciality & Fine Food Fair at Olympia, London.  With over 700 suppliers of artisan food at the show it really was a huge event and quite daunting when we first arrived.   The fair attracts attendees such as independent retailers, delicatessens, chefs, hoteliers, restaurateurs and importers, distributors and wholesalers all looking for new products to stock. 

Lots of planning had gone into the stand and all the hard work paid off as we had such good feedback from everyone who walked past- lots of people just stopping to tell us who much they loved the brand.  And a lot of very happy tasters!

We had a lot of interest from many new potential customers so now all the hard work begins in following everything up and hopefully you'll be able to find us in many more locations very soon.

Great Taste Award Winners

We are so pleased to have won not one but two Great Taste Awards in our first year of entering.  Our winning preserves are..... Jalapeno Jam and Octavia Raspberry Preserve.  Woohoo!

The judges said of Jalapeno Jam:

‘ The jalapeno aroma is excellent. The balance of sweet and heat works very well and the length of flavour is just wonderful. We loved its versatility and spent quite a while listing how it could be used.  Altogether a delicious, lively, well balanced piquant jelly.'

And of Octavia Raspberry Preserve:

‘ Smells like summer. Really enjoyed the reduced sugar. A must for the breakfast table. Great versatile product. Perfect also for a Victoria sponge cake, jam tarts or in porridge'
