MY BUZZ

We recently attended an event organised by our local Dorset Chamber of Commerce about digital growth; Inspirational speakers, really useful round table discussions on a variety of related topics - and some delicious pastries! Now we need to start prioritising and putting things into practise!

MY BIO

Dorset Honey Nougat and Gourmet Marshmallows -but Mellower!! That's us! We started making our Marshmellows after our honeymoon to Provence, when we tasted their wonderful honey nougat and wanted to try to make something similar using local Dorset honey. On our return, Gavin started exploring sugar technology, and, after a brief foray into fudge making, he started having a go at making marshmallows. They turned out very well, and so we decided to try adding flavour, using real flavour ingredients...and Marshmellows were born. Hence: Marshmallows - but mellower!! After a couple of years Gavin once again started working on our nougat idea, and succeeded in making some great tasting products using Dorset Honey - result! Along the way, we had tried to buy some of our more specialised ingredients in small quantities, and this was sometimes impossible; we realised that others might have the same problem, and so we set up www.mmingredients.co.uk to sell on some of our bulk bought supplies. This idea has now also started to grow and we are supplying products for activities from baking, to bait-making to special effects make-up production. Our Dorset Honey Nougat sales are now on a par with, and sometimes over-take, our Gourmet Marshmallows sales. Sales leading up to Christmas were good, and now, especially after attending the fantastic #SBSevent2015, we know that our next major work is going to be on our website so that online ordering is easier from a mobile device.

MY BUSINESS TIPS

Listen to feedback about your products, and always be prepared to learn. Your reputation is as good as the last item you sold, so keep it good. Don't be afraid to change course - just because you've always done it, doesn't mean you always have to!
