Lil­lyPuds, Chelms­ford

Fol­low­ing years of mak­ing Christ­mas pud­dings for friends, in 2015, Ali­son Lilly de­cided to launch the Lil­lyPuds brand. These award­win­ning pud­dings are care­fully pack­aged for gift­ing or for din­ing and can be found through the trade or re­tail mar­kets. What makes these pud­dings unique is that they are scrump­tiously light with re­duced added sugar, a high fruit con­tent and no mixed peel or dairy in­gre­di­ents.

Olive Branch, Wivenhoe

Fol­low­ing Christ­mas 2016, a lit­tle piece of Syria came to Wivenhoe. On 1a Sta­tion Road, the Olive Branch opened its doors with a grand open­ing! Fea­tured on ITV news, BBC ra­dio and the lo­cal press, the Olive Branch has been cel­e­brated, not only for its de­li­cious au­then­tic Syr­ian ve­gan dishes, but also for the mes­sage of hope and peace it rep­re­sents.

Brad­fields Farm Dairy, North Ben­fleet

Brad­fields Farm Dairy is one of only a hand­ful of dairy farms left in Es­sex. Run by the Lam­bert fam­ily for three gen­er­a­tions, it launched its mi­cro dairy in Fe­bru­ary 2017 mak­ing fresh milk, cream, cheese and yo­gurts which are sold from the farm and at farm­ers’ mar­kets, as well as through whole­sale to lo­cal farm shops.
