THE owner of a vinegar-making company says she is beating the recession and expanding her business.

Nut Tree Farm Vinegars, founded in 2011 by Emma Aldous, has seen demand outstrip supply. Emma has now formed a new company, New Twist Foods Ltd, which she jointly owns with local business consultant Neville Stein.

The firm, based at Alderton, near Woodbridge, will initially produce an extended range of infused vinegars which will be available through farm shops, delicatessens and restaurants in the East Anglian region.

“From the customer feedback I’d had, I knew they were great products that could do really well, but as a sole proprietor I realised that I needed help to reach their full potential,” explained Emma.

“Neville has a proven track record in creating new markets and his skills and experience complement mine perfectly.”

Neville, who lives in Woodridge and is very familiar with the speciality food sector, believes the new company has a great future.

“We choose the name New Twist Foods because Emma’s vinegar products are a new twist on an established product,” he explained.

“Essentially the vinegars are infused with fruits and spices to create unusual, but exciting, new tastes.

“Ultimately we aim to add a new twist to a whole range of traditional food items.”

New Twist Foods Ltd has undergone a complete re-brand.

Its range includes flavours such as spiced blackberry vinegar, an award winning chocolate vinegar, and a popular zingy lime and chilli vinegar.

They are available as 250ml bottles or in catering size containers for cafes and restaurants.
