(1999) Hawkshead Relish Company creators had a busy café in the Lake District Town of Hawkshead and made a small range of Chutney, Relish and Preserves to go with the meals served to their customers. People enjoyed the preserves so much they would ask to buy a jar to take home with them. Gradually they found they were producing more and more jars of preserves to sell.
In 2001, a foot-and-mouth outbreak swept the country. People were told not to visit the countryside which caused a devastating impact on hospitality and tourism in Cumbria including the café. They decided that if people couldn’t come to the countryside, they would bring the countryside to them!
Seeing the opportunity to sell their preserves further afield, they took samples of the products to Garden Centres, Shops and Restaurants who all agreed to stock the Chutneys, Relishes and Preserves and sell them to their own customers. The Hawkshead Relish Company was born!
Hawkshead believe the reason why their products are so successful and why people love them is because they care about the ingredients they use. Where other producers will sometimes use cheaper ingredients to bulk out their products, they only use quality ingredients that add to the flavour and you can really taste the difference in the quality.
Having started with a small range of 2-3 products, they found out Mark had the knack for coming up with great new recipe ideas. He would come up with recipes that work well but were not run of the mill. As their range was growing, they found they had 20, 30, 50… 100 products. Mark’s imaginative and great tasting products lead to Hawkshead Relish also winning over 60 Great Taste Awards.
All Hawkshead products are still made by hand using traditional open pans and are free from Nuts, Gluten, Additives and Preservatives as well as all being suitable for vegetarians and most are vegan friendly.
