Where can I buy your delicious, spicy Flaming Hot chutney?
Booths supermarkets, Green Valley Grocer, Slaithwaite; Praze Fine Foods, Glossop; Ryecorn Whole Foods, Brighouse; Taylors Foodstore, Honley; Upton upon Stour Spar.

Can I use your products once they been opened for more than 4 weeks?
We test our products to determine the optimum shelf life. The 4 week time frame is a safe guard as we have no idea how badly you might treat our products once opened, e.g. left out in a warm kitchen for hours, dirty spoons being dipped in or even worse butter and bread crumb coated knives!

To avoid having any leftovers after 4 weeks why not take a peek at our recipe pages.

Do you have any Kosher or Halal products?
We don’t currently certify any of our products to be Kosher or Halal specific.
