Our Suppliers | Mr Filbert’s
Hi and welcome to our local artisan and gifts range. In this regular blog series we take a closer look at our local artisan producers who reflect all that is special and unique to our region. Today we are delighted to highlight Mr Filbert’s and introduce Sarah Lloyd.
” Like so many great entrepreneurs the idea for Mr Filbert’s all started in the pub! Our founder friends were in their local enjoying a drink but suffering the average mainstream bar snack offerings that lacked taste, quality and anything remotely interesting about them and so the idea to produce a range of hand-crafted snacks with “really interesting” recipes was born. “
” Inspired by their time in different parts of the world the “flavours from around the world” continue to be a real hit and with infamous recipes such as French Rosemary Almonds and Peruvian Pink Peppercorn Cashews and Peanuts they soon became award winning and adored. ”
” My favourite part of the job is undoubtedly travelling our beautiful region meeting Mr Filbert’s fans and watching them fall in love with our recipes… oh and of course getting free snacks, that part is pretty cool. I would say I am most like our olive snack packs because like me you can take them anywhere, represent great taste, work well with a G&T and are round-ish… a bit like me! ”
” We proudly cater for many different tastes and diets using the finest natural and fresh ingredients. Almost all our recipes are Gluten Free (look for the “free from” logo on our packs) and many of our ranges are suitable for Vegan diets. We oven roast rather than fry our nut recipes and they are a great source of protein. ”
” We like WestCountry because they are a great bunch of people sharing a common goal – to service a fantastic customer base with the very best produce and artisan food and drinks. Everyone involved is passionate about their role from the drivers to the buyers. They are a pleasure to do business with. ”
