As a visitor to our website, you are the very first to be told about our Christmas gift options, and you are the first to be given the option to order. We are not going to start promoting them for another week or so. We have everything here in Ireland, as everything is made in Ireland and will be delivered in time for Christmas.

What A Busy Few Weeks In A Small Food Business Looks Like

Apologies I haven’t had a chance to blog in a while, its been a mad few weeks. We took a few days off a few weeks ago and while that was lovely, it just meant that double the amount of work was waiting for us when we got back, so there wasn’t a lot of time for writing.  We’ve been pushing hard to get the word out about any SuperValu or Centra being able to stock Velvet Cloud yogurt, so that

We've just had a great morning - Smiles all round

Still Smiling

Still Smiling

It started off last Saturday with our very first customer visit since inter-county restrictions were lifted. We called in to say hello to Brid in Honest2Goodness Market in Glasnevin. If you are in that area or even passing through, I would highly recommend a visit, the covered market offers fine wines, and an amazing selection of artisan specialty foods, with many producers manning their own market stalls. Brid was one of our very first customers five years ago and I still remember the excitement when she put in an order.
