Lemon Melts are the Nation's Favourite Organic Product!

10 Jul 2017

We're just back from a whirlwind trip to London with our sons Fergus, 16 & Rory,13. Island Bakery's Lemon Melts were nominated by members of the public for the Nation's Favourite Organic Product in the annual BOOM Awards which celebrate the Best of the Organic Market. We were invited to the awards ceremony in London's Borough Market. With the boys on school holidays we were very kindly allowed to bring them along. We didn't expect to win but we thought it would be fun to have a family trip to London.

During the day we had a lovely lunch of Herdwick lamb wraps from Borough Market, and browsed the stalls and shops including a stop at Neal's Yard Dairy to sample some Isle of Mull Cheese!

We were genuinely shocked and stunned to be announced as the winners as we were up against some really wonderful companies and their products such as fellow finalists Yeo Valley and Zay'toun, and lovely Booja Booja chocolates and Riverford amongst those shortlisted.

Huge thanks to everyone who voted for Lemon Melts, and to our team at Island Bakery who put so much into making sure our biscuits are up to scratch.
