They say variety is the spice of life

by Claire Martinsen on Tue 25th Aug 2015 02:08

Sometimes being a small business owner is just sheer craziness……..a million tasks to do everyday that need juggling and multi-tasking. Its the complete opposite of being a job expert and narrow in fouc. These past few weeks I’ve been doing a myriad of tasks….and yes I am sure there are some experts out there that […]

What we are....and what we're not....

by Claire Martinsen on Thu 20th Aug 2015 02:56

We’re small [very small],  independent and family owned…….and I think that’s a good place to be. We’re not owned by a huge global player, nor by a Plc, nor by a group of Venture Capitalists. We’re not answering to shareholders nor loaning millions from the bank.  We’re not a fast track mission to float on […]

New product trial....Elderflower Posh Squash

by Claire Martinsen on Tue 18th Aug 2015 02:16

Ok….I’ve been asked for this many times, so have just made a few bottles of Wild Elderflower Posh Squash to sell mainly locally and at events over the next few months.  Just to test the water and see what everyone thinks. If you want a bottle then come and see us at an event, or […]

New look Posh Squash Labels

by Claire Martinsen on Fri 14th Aug 2015 02:08

Here’s a little peek at our brand new Posh Squash labels……they’re 2016 regulation compliant [phew] so have full nutritional information.  They are more of an evolution than a revolution for sure….the changes look pretty small, but I’ve taken the opportunity to give them a big of a ‘zing’ in terms of colour. I’m really pleased […]

New Label Regulations

by Claire Martinsen on Thu 13th Aug 2015 02:46

I shared last week that EU law required the flagging of 14 allergens [including nuts, lupin and celery]…a further piece of EU law comes into effect in 2016 requiring all packaged foods to have full nutritional labelling on it too. In fact I’ve always been ahead of the curve on this one, and Breckland Orchard […]

Finally...some lovely drinks for Diabetics

by Claire Martinsen on Tue 11th Aug 2015 02:38

I’ve always tried to make my drinks as natural as I possibly can, and that means using sugar to sweeten them…but lots of people have asked along the years if they are suitable for diabetics, which my range of Posh Pop aren’t…….but cue Posh Pop Lighter! The Posh Pop Lighter range is sweetened with sucralose […]

Cambridge Food and Drink Awards 2015

by Claire Martinsen on Fri 07th Aug 2015 11:19

Spent a splendid afternoon yesterday at the Cambridge Food and Drink Awards at Quy Mill. Afternoon tea was served whilst some jittery finalists got excited to hear the results. I was there as I’d been asked to be the  judge of the Farm shop/Deli category…  which I’d judged a few weeks back from a  short […]

Allergens in Breckland Orchard

by Claire Martinsen on Thu 06th Aug 2015 02:50

The law changed in December 2014 so that all allergens present in food stuffs had to be clearly marked on packaging.  The 14 allergens that were affected by the change in the law were: Cereals containing gluten: declaration of wheat (such as spelt and Khorasan), rye, barley, oats Crustaceans Eggs Fish Peanuts Soybeans Milk Nuts: […]
