In 2017, UK snackers were eating twice as much popcorn than any other European Nation!
Joe & Sephs popcorn began from the inspiration gained from his father; “most parents would cook their kids spaghetti bolognese, but my dad cooked us popcorn” – their epic gourmet flavours range from Mince Pie, to Marmite, and even Mojito!

“A gourmet sweet like no other” – and we’d have to agree. Challenging the confectionary world is no easy feat, but Jamie and Ed took on that challenge, and we’re so glad they did! Their sweets focus on using the best possible natural ingredients and authentic flavours, and even had some vegan options in their range. A personal fave is blueberry bliss, oh, and the ability to get 2kg of sweets delivered monthly…
Coffee roasting and careful sourcing is a huge part of the Caravan story. We love that they roast small batches of beans daily on their Probat roasters using beans sourced from around the world. They source green coffee from single farms and estates in the speciality coffee market where the focus is quality, provenance, sustainability, freshness and fair relationships with the growers.
Joe’s passion for the finest cuppa begins on small organic tea plantations nestled high up in the misty hills of Dyatalawa, Sri Lanka. This is where Joe sources all his tea because, unlike other tea blends, a cup of Joe’s tea is brewed up with 100% organic Ceylon loose tea leaves – for the most outstanding, pure and fresh flavour possible.
Joe’s sought-after organic blends have gone on to win a whopping 25 Great Taste Awards!
Award winning School of Wok started out as the brainchild of the young and talented chef Jeremy Pang. Hailing from three generations of Chinese chefs Jeremy developed his passion for food and soon realised the importance and correlation between basic cooking skills and eating well.
