OUR STORY

The Great British Pantry is a secondary brand owned by Cottage Delight Limited, targeting the convenience sector. Cottage Delight was founded in 1974 producing handmade fudge in the heart of the Staffordshire Moorlands – where we still reside to this day. Over the subsequent years our passion for quality and taste grew the Cottage Delight range to include jams, marmalades, curds, chutneys, table sauces and many more delectable delights and our level of dedication to traditional methods and quality ingredients is paramount; this is reflected with our huge total of 184 Great Taste Award wins to date.

Following four decades at fine food festivals, shows, and farmers markets, with the support of independent trade, it is time for us to delve into the convenience sector. Brands are more important than ever in Convenience, with consumers having a greater desire for quality of products, British product, artisan producers, everyday luxury items to enjoy at home and make mealtimes an event, and for comforting nostalgic products. The Great British Pantry is an artisan brand who are experts in these categories and we have created a broad offering of flavours for consumers to explore.
