Aspall savours vinegar investment

SUFFOLK-based cider maker Aspall yesterday celebrated the opening of a new vinegar bottling line, and launched a new range of premium vinegar products

The event, at Aspall Hall Farm, near Debenham, was hosted by Aspall partner Barry Chevallier Guild, with Suffolk farmer and television presenter Jimmy Doherty performing the opening ceremony, which was followed by sampling of the new vinegars on locally-sourced fish and chips.

The opening is the result of more than a year’s work and an investment of more than �750,000.

It has seen the Aspall workforce increase to more than 70 and the company’s vinegar range expand to 11 different products
