Derbyshire Dales businesses were in the spotlight on national television on Sunday.
Sauced Here of Ashford-in-the-Water was star of the show on BBC's Countryfile, alongside other local enterprises including Brock and Morten, producers of rapeseed oils, mayonnaise and honey, as well as Dales based visitor attraction Caudwell’s Mill.
Both Sauced Here and Brock & Morten have received free advice from Derbyshire Dales District Council's Business Advice Service and both also carry the 'Inspired by the Peak District' brand.
Offering more than 1,250 products and services hand sourced from around 40 of the area’s top farmers, producers and independent businesses, Sauced Here was set up in 2016 by Luke Osborne.
He realised on a trip away with friends just how much locally produced food and drink could be missed by a visitor if they simply ordered their shop from a major supermarket chain.
Now Sauced Here is one of a growing number of businesses - 650 in total - across the Dales and the wider Peak District that have signed up to ‘Inspired by the Peak District’, a marketing initiative aimed at raising the profile of locally produced products and services and giving businesses a competitive edge.
Robin Eyre, Chair of Business Peak District, said:
‘It’s great to see local businesses working together in this way, showcasing and giving visitors and residents the opportunity to try the fantastic range of locally produced food and drink that the Peak District and Derbyshire has to offer."
