We were again successful in being awarded Great Taste Awards for the third year in a row.
This year we were awarded 2 stars for our Lancashire Cheese & Onion and our Simply Spuds flavours. We were also awarded 1 star for our Sea Salt.
For those that don’t know the Great Taste Awards are organised by the Guild of Fine Food, and acknowledged as the industry benchmark for speciality food and drink. The Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying food and drink in your local, quality retailer.
Fiddler’s welcomed BBC1’s Countryfile to its farm in April this year. Presenter Ellie Harrison spent a full day on the farm, harvesting potatoes speaking with brother’s John and Robert and producing her very own Lancashire Crisps.
Robert took Ellie out onto the fields to show her how we prepare, plant and harvest the potatoes. Ellie then joined John and the rest of the family in the crisp factory (next to the fields) where she was able to oversee production of Lancashire Sauce flavoured Lancashire Crisps.
It was wonderful opportunity for us to showcase our award winning products to the entire country as well as act as champions for food and drink producers across Lancashire. Our county is home to some of the nation’s icon foods and the more we can all shout about it the better.

Wow, what a year 2013 has been for Fiddler’s Lancashire Crisps.
The year got off to a bang with a number of new listings in high profile establishments throughout the Lancashire and Manchester area, giving us the confidence to invest in the development of some new flavours for later in the year.
The summer was extremely hectic as it was festival season and we attended the Southport Flower Show (for the third time), Clitheroe Food Festival and the Geat Eccleston Show. All events were hugely successful, helping us to raise our profile further and pick up a number of new listing in retailers and catering businesses around the North West.
We also had time this year to launch a number of new flavours – Simply Spuds, Cracked Black Pepper and Black Pudding & English Mustard with the latter two picking up Great Taste Awards.
As far as press coverage we were featured in Lancashire Life magazine and the local Ormskirk paper along with a few other food related magazines for trade and consumer.
And to cap off a wonderful year we had a new Fiddler join the family with the birth of Annabel in November.
From all of us at Fiddler’s we wish you all the very best for Christmas and look forward to seeing you (hopefully at one of the summer shows) in 2014.
