A Royal welcome

Posted by Viv on

We are delighted to announce our new-found friendship with Peyton and Byrne at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew.

As of today (Tuesday April 23), you will be able to spot Brown Bag Crisps on the shelves across the ‘Food At Kew’ outlets in Kew Gardens. We can be found in The Orangery, White Peaks Café, The Pavilion and Victoria Gate Café. What a treat for us indeed to be in such a diverse and dynamic environment.

Kew Gardens hosts a range of events from Kew Live music in July where you can see the likes of Paul Weller, Leona Lewis and Jools Holland, to weddings, tree-top walks, tropically-heated glasshouses and more than 40 iconic buildings. It really is an all-encompassing day out and we will be right there with you.

Happy St George’s Day

Posted by Viv on

It’s upon us already- and what a gorgeous day for it! Happy St George’s Day everyone – definitely time for some impromptu frolics with friends and family, we think.

Here at Brown Bag Crisps we are working to a tight schedule and the closest we are getting to enjoy this sunshine is with some sunny tracks playing and the windows wide open, in the office! But we are not complaining  because our crisps family is growing and we are busy sending out orders to yet more exciting outlets. Watch this space for more news on that later today.

But, back to St George, our patron saint.  Today is a time to celebrate the many great feats of being English. Tell us some of your favourite things about the small but mighty country in which we live. We’re starting the list on Twitter and Facebook, come over and chat with us @brownbagcrisps

Keeping up with the Bradshaws

Posted by Chloe on

The Bradshaw family are grabbing the headline news with their one year challenge. They have given themselves the task of trying to live off of purely BRITISH manufactured goods to see how much is still manufactured in the UK. Something that started off as quite a struggle has won the hearts of the nation. They have been supported by fellow Brits with tips and tricks and supplier info, which have lead to a widening of resources for them in all areas of their challenge. The vast social media interest has made the Bradshaws the family of 21st century following.
As a small independent and British food manufacturer ourselves we feel it’s only right that we should be supporting the Bradshaws too! Will you join us in supporting the UK manufacturing trade by giving trade to your local independents? I love just how much local support they are getting from all over, it just warms the cockles of my heart. One thing that is a tad sad for their son Lucan who is three is their aren’t many, British toy manufacturers around, so to any budding entrepreneur out there we have just found your latest enterprise!
