We are a small team of cooks who are passionate about our product. We have a great time working together!
Everything is made by hand in small batches and in trays no larger than 16 pieces - because we have found that that is the only way to get it perfect.
As well as winning 'Speciality Producer of the Year' our flapjacks picked up a total of 14 stars in the 2010 Great Taste Awards including two of the top three star awards. They were also overall winner in the 2008 Northwest Fine Foods Awards, Bakery and Confectionary category.
There is no compromise whatsoever on the quality of the ingredients. They are all 100% natural and we hold blind tastings to recheck that we really are using the best.
The recipe for our first Finest Plain Flapjack evolved out of one handed down from a friend's granny. New recipes are tried and old ones carefully improved.
There are ten different flavours to choose from so there is something for everyone.
Our environmental credentials? The packaging is very light weight. The bulk boxes are always either second hand or reusable ones that we take away after delivery. The flapjacks themselves have fairly low carbon even with the butter because oats are such a great low carbon food. We even do the odd small delivery by bike - although in truth that's more for fun than to save the world. The only air freight is to support climbing professional Leo Holding on his many expeditions, including his first ascent of Mount Asgard on Baffin Island. (He got to the top, of course).
Our Apple and Cinnamon Flapjack is created from the finest oats, butter and syrup combined with finely chopped dried apple and freshly ground cinnamon.
In the 2008 North West Fine Food Awards, this variety scored 12 out of 12 in the judges' final assessment and came runner up in the Baking and Confectionary category, second only to Kendal Jacksmith's very own Finest Plain Flapjack.
