We make 2 recipes for food service. The first is our super premium 'Ultimate' recipe. It is a lighter pudding than many, with no treacly bitterness.  It is packed with top quality fruits and nuts. This recipe is available as 120g individuals, 908g basins and 1kg loaves.

We also have a 'Traditional' recipe. This premium recipe has a simpler ingredient listing than the Ultimate. While the recipe contains no nuts it cannot be guaranteed to be nut free. It is a rich, delicious, high quality product.                                                                                     

Individuals come in cases of 48, 908g basins in cases of 6 and 1kg blocks in cases of 8. 1 Kg blocks are individually labelled and barcoded so cases can be split.

We make alcohol free puddings to order.  We regret that our open plan bakery makes gluten free puddings impossible for us to produce.

We can provide versions of our recipes using different alcohols. We have made puddings using beers rather than the brandy we usually steep the fruit in. We can use a beer made by your brewery customer provided that we can get hold of the beer in an appropriate format and that you order in whole batches (about 110 Kg).

Last but definitely not least, we are aware that presentation is hugely important to chefs.  The only way to get puddings which look great on the plate is to hand tamp every one of them. We are not making puddings on a high speed line - we're hands on.  This is the result:

These images are not extreme examples. We bought the one on the right from a supermarket and pulled ours out of a wrapped retail case. No prior selection, we just photographed what we found.

For flavour you have to taste them. Please ask us for samples. We'll be proud to send them.  Email

While we generally make to order we do try to keep a pallet in hand of Traditional 120g and 1kg puddings so that we can respond to 'emergency' reorders. We would be grateful if main orders could be placed as early as possible and certainly a good month before required delivery date. That said we are not rigid and will always try to help if you have a pudding crisis. Best prices are for whole pallets of one product but we will mix pallets for an extra charge. We send out orders on a 3 day pallet delivery service. Next day is available at extra cost.

Foodservice Christmas Puddings

Our first years of making Christmas puddings greatly exceeded our expectations. 

Increasingly substantial orders from independent, high end, food service distributors kept us very busy.  We were more than happy with the orders and our customers were happy with our reliable delivery and quality.
