Poppet’s Pantry expands its reach
STEVE and Jane Hitchings’ baby food to go was so popular with parents they repeatedly received requests for familysized servings.
The chefs from Swanbourne then expanded their range and Poppet’s Pantry was born.
The four-year-old North Fremantle business has expanded to offer catering and their delivery service has recently been boosted from two to four zones to take in northern and eastern suburbs, along that the meals were preservative and sugar free, and they catered for gluten and dairy free clients.
The couple, who now have two children, met when Mr Hitchings was a chef on one of Richard Branson’s private islands and his future wife was cooking on the island next door.
The name came from a nickname Mrs Hitching was given by her niece.
“I was called Janey Poppet by my niece,” she said.
