Big news from the pantry… we’ve secured a first retail outlet for our jams & pickles!
Those lovely people at Ullacombe Farm Shop & Barn Café have decided in their infinite wisdom that the GPP range of bijoux, hand-crafted scoffables make the grade and so very shortly we will see our curds, conserves, piccalillis and pickles adorning their shelves… hopefully for only a very brief spell before being snapped-up by hungry punters.
This is a significant coup for us – right up there with our initial success in securing the exclusive supply deal for our chums at B&B to the stars Yarner House (the very same establishment that managed to wangle us a rather useful mention in a Telegraph travel review of their esteemed accommodations) and so we’re a little bit giddy with excitement at the moment.
That said, there’s no time spare to waste in self-congratulation – the Sumptuous Strawberry Jam and Luscious Lemon Curd won’t make itself! Likewise, our current labels won’t magically update themselves with the additional production information that they require to make us 100% EU-label-Nazi-proof and so, without further ado, it’s off to the bat cave to mess about with Photoshop, in an attempt to add-in strange little ‘e’ symbols, average audited batch weights, allergen warnings, prominent ingredient percentiles and other soul-sappingly tiresome boilerplate that will hopefully keep the bean-counters and ambulance chasers from our door.
Label drudgery aside though, things are looking up!
