We’ve been working with sweets for the past 18 years, so we like to think we know a thing or two about them. Justine – the company founder – grew up watching her mum making handmade fudge for her shop in Lyme Regis. Her mum was a stickler for doing things properly and beat every batch herself by hand. The result was delicious, crumbly, melt-in-the mouth fudges. Justine is proud to continue the tradition of selling high quality fudges as well as a few new sweets she’s added to the collection since. We sell our sweets exclusively at Borough Market, London.
Meet the team
Job: ‘The Fudge Boss’
Spends most of her time looking after the sweet making (and the rest of the team).
Favourite Sweet: Peanut Butter Rocky Road. “I go slightly ‘nuts’ when I’m anyway near it… hide it from me, please!”
Cause close to my heart: ‘Casa Guatemala’
“I travelled to Guatemala in 2012 with my family and visited this amazing children’s orphanage.” www.casaguatemala.co.uk
Fun Fact: “I’m a whizz at table tennis (some may beg to differ) and I also love a backgammon challenge (ideally while munching a bag of our sea salt caramel fudge).”
Job: ‘Special Ops’
Probably the smiliest guy in the fudge world. Usually to be found at our stall, happily serving customers with a wee twinkle in his eye (when he’s not running around organising everything!).
Favourite Sweet: Ginger Fudge. “I like the spicy/sweet contrast.”
Cause close to my heart: signal.org.uk/projects/africa/uganda/
Fun Fact: “I’m a keen painter, some say I’m like a young Picasso.”
Job: ‘The Market Man’
Always calm and collected, not much can ruffle Alex’s feathers. Basically it would be chaos without him (but don’t let him know that).
Favourite Sweet: “Sea Salt Caramel Fudge of course (along with most of our customers.) Yum!”
Cause close to my heart: africanconservation.org
Fun Fact: “I’ve appeared on the TV show ‘The Bill’ twice. Unintentionally though…hey, where’s my agent?!”
