I’m Nicola, and this blog will be following the ups and downs as I launch my new business, Single Variety Co.
I’ve worked in Food for over 10 years, and have always been so inspired by all the small businesses that I’ve worked with along the way. Coupled with the frustration of working within larger food businesses and a love of jam that I discovered earlier this year now is the time to be taking the plunge to do it myself!
Having noticed a gap in the market for products made from one single variety of fruit, I’ve made it my mission to discover just what the best variety of each fruit is to use in preserving, and use this knowledge to develop jams and preserves which showcase the unique flavour and essence of the fruit. I’ll be working with UK farmers wherever possible, and of course, working with the seasons.
I can’t wait to share my journey with you!
