Laurence, an avid strawberry grower himself, has tended an allotment for many years and shares Annabel's passion for the best quality produce the UK has to offer. He will be working on creating delectable dishes using British ingredients for Annabel's Deliciously British customers to try at home. He will also be using the strawberries at all his events over the summer. Laurence says of the partnership "I cannot wait to start incorporating the strawberries into my dishes. Knowing exactly where the fruit comes from gives me huge confidence when serving them to customers. Not only are they of exceptional quality but they are grown in a sustainable manner, an option we had been lacking until now!"
Annabel's Deliciously British strawberries are available to the restaurant trade through selected wholesalers but also accessible to consumers from both Ocado and Booths. Annabel comments "When I developed the brand, I was sure I wanted not only to supply the best professional kitchens but also to consumers, just like my family. Those who hold provenance and sustainability as priorities when shopping for their families."
The fruit has been awarded Red Tractor Assurance, LEAF accreditation and A* BRC certification, all demonstrations of the high standards held at Annabel's farm. As well as running the enterprise, Annabel keeps a close eye on quality to ensure the standards are upheld throughout the growing season.
