Mr Christian is a strong supporter of Specialty Food Producers and Retailers and has been honoured by the UK Guild of Fine Food with their prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award for his support of them.

Owner Eric Watkins says, “We are delighted to be moving to our superb new premises, so we can provide additional opportunities to both existing and new customers. Our new cake bakery enables us to offer even more flexibility for new products and formats. We look forward to welcoming them to our new premises to sample our products on 15th July.”
