All Things Scrummy!
As many of you will already know, the delightful Scrummy Pig shop at Wroxham Barns became our first Proudly Norfolk Shop back when the scheme was first founded but the story doesn’t end there…
Mike and Sam have been tireless ambassadors for the food and drink industry in Norfolk, so much so that they have made it their mission to get as many local food and drink businesses to sign up to Proudly Norfolk as they can, as they are firm believers that the scheme can only serve to help all those involved.
“Our regular customer base is entirely founded by like-minded people who often pop in for their favourite locally produced food and drink. I think there is a shift in the mind-set of the shopper, who now wants to know where their food is sourced, as well as knowing it has been ethically produced, with as few food miles and the lowest carbon footprint in Norfolk. They know that our products tick all those boxes, as well, of course, as being scrummy!”
So we are delighted to announce that Scrummy Pig has been appointed an Associate Sponsor of Norfolk Food & Drink in recognition of all their hard work in helping us to grow the Proudly Norfolk Food & Drink scheme, which is now approaching 100 members.
However, in true Scrummy style, Mike and Sam instantly ‘passed it forward’ and decided to sponsor brand new producers Nuoi Foods, who produce all-natural nut butters. Founded by twin sisters Sophie & Lauren Chittock, they pride themselves on developing products using simple ingredients with no refined sugar or palm oil.
“Mike and I know how much support being members of Proudly Norfolk could give Sophie and Lauren as they set out to get their product recognised. However, they are right at the start of their journey and money is of course tight, so we wanted to support their first year’s membership. We all had to start somewhere and it’s lovely to give something back. We look forward to watching them grow as there is no doubt a big demand for high quality products such as theirs.”
