Our range of high quality products are unwrapped for slicing or packaged for resale and deliver distinction and value for local businesses across Derbyshire, adjacent counties and increasingly further afield. Some of our products and promotions are profiled at the foot of this page.
We focus on producing for all our cutomers consistently the very best tasting cakes and desserts, that make sure every local business we supply stands out.
The key to our success is a passion for authentic great tasting artisan food, always using butter and wherever possible fresh Derbyshire sourced ingredients and from local partners who are passionate about the quality of their products: Fresh fruit and vegetables supplied by Chesterfield Food Hero 2013 W Ayres, Chesterfield Market; free range eggs from Betty’s Farm,
Willington, Derbyshire; fair trade coffee for our Espresso Walnut cake comes from the award winning Northern Tea Merchants; some of the dried fruits, nuts, spices and some specialist sugars from Lembas , Sheffield, speciality vegetarian and wholefood wholesalers.
Our relationships matter and we are proud of our partnerships with distinguished food and drink businesses and producers, in Chesterfield, Derbyshire and elsewhere.
And it is what we leave out that also matters, so we avoid using artificial flavours or colours.
The result is our continuously evolving range of authentic, distinctive and affordable artisan products, all with premium, taste, texture and quality. Our products made without wheat four or gluten are distinguished and loved by everyone because they taste great!
As well as specialising in supplying local retail businesses, we are also able to supply to order locally or online.
