We’re off to meet Dragon Theo Paphitis!

Posted by Viv on

Having been chosen by Theo Paphitis, businessman and star of Dragon’s Den, as one of his ‘Small Business Sunday’ winners, we’re off to see the man himself today!

Small Business Sunday is a competition run by Theo on Twitter. To enter the competition you have to Tweet Theo on a Sunday between 5pm and 7.30pm, explaining why your business is worthy of a Retweet. He then chooses six businesses which he Re-tweets to all of his 200,000 followers.

The competition has now been running for two years and Theo decided to host a networking event for all of his winners. So, with crisps at the ready, we are now heading to Birmingham for this very special event – excited isn’t the word! I’ll report back later!

Come and have a crunch with Brown Bag Crisps

Posted by Viv on

Award-winning Brown Bag Crisps – the only crisps in the UK to be cooked in 100% olive oil – are visiting the Farm Shop and Deli Show for the first time (stand C117). The show, at the NEC until Tuesday, March 27, is part of Food & Drink Expo.

Brown Bag Crisps is run by husband and wife team Phil and Viv, who set up the business in 2010 following many years perfecting the recipe for the best crisp in the couple’s home kitchen.

The hand-cooked snacks come in five tasty flavours packaged in the stylish brown-paper foil bags that inspired their name.

Why not come and sample:

• Lightly Salted (40g and 120g bags)
• Sea Salt and Malt Vinegar (40g and 120g bags)
• Mature Cheddar, Manchego & Onion (40g and 120g bags)
• Sea Salt and Black Pepper (120g bag)
• Oak Smoked Chilli (40g and 120g bags)

Sea Salt and Malt Vinegar and Oak Smoked Chilli both won Gold Star in the 2011 Great Taste Awards.

Brown Bag Crisps are made from seasonal varieties of British heritage potatoes. All the flavourings are 100% natural, allowing the taste to shine through.

You can find our bags at a growing number of independent food stores across the UK.

We look forward to welcoming you to our stand.
