We always love to hear from fellow foodies who’d like to stock our tasty products. Please get in touch with either Lesley or Michelle to chat through our range and find out whats best for you, their details are below.
As a super taster extraordinaire when Lesley isn’t critiquing our chutney you’ll find her drinking posh coffee and eating even posher chocolate. She may also be riding her bike or roller skating down t’hill to work (click here for the video!).
Our Michelle is full of Irish wit and charm, living in Yorkshire so long she has earned honorary citizenship to God’s own county. She keeps us entertained and is always a whirl of activity, yet still finds time to enjoy life outside of the world of chutney control with a spot of tap dancing or whipping up a gluten free feast for her wonderful family, sometimes both at the same time!
