I have been a food fanatic all of my life. I love food. I love great food more so which is why for many years now I have been passionately involved in businesses in the food industry, crafting stunning food that simply excites the taste buds
I am a Grantham Gingerbread, a nick name given to all people born and raised in this fantastic town. I was born, raised and schooled in Grantham and I am now proud to still live here with my own scrummy family. 
It was in 2011 that I rediscovered Grantham Gingerbread. This amazing biscuit was first made in the town way back in 1740. Grantham Gingerbread is unique and quite simply a gorgeous little biscuit but for some years had not been made commercially. This was a great shame and something I felt had to be addressed. Eventually after months of research, testing, patience, long days and late nights, we achieved our goal ! The results are now available for the world to see and taste.


The Grantham Gingerbread team is a small one. My chief supporter is my beautiful wife Kerry and our  three little monkeys Joshua, Charlie and Ellis. As a Grantham family we care about the heritage of the Grantham Gingerbread and we are determined in our effort to put the biscuit firmly on the world stage. We currently sell and ship Grantham Gingerbread all over the world and are stocking the gorgeous cartons on the shelves of the country's most recognised food retailers.  Buy yours today whilst in our on-line shop.
