Relish Book HamperMaria Whitehead and husband Mark established their venture in 1999 to create condiments for their small village café. In 2001, foot and mouth struck. Despite this, they began to grow their business. Mark’s uncanny knack to combine flavours and transform great local ingredients stood them in good stead as they began to create an ever-growing range of pickles, preserves, ketchups, jams and sauces for farm shops and markets up and down the country. Today they export to 12 countries across the globe and have received countless accolades for the quality of their products, all handmade in the Lake District.
