I run a food business from home called Fiodra Fine Foods. This is registered with Haringey Council and has a 5-star ‘very good’ food hygiene rating. I also make jam on board Barge Fiodra, which is registered with Dacorum Council and has a 5-star rating.
I have a Level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene for Catering certificate, awarded in November 2017 (and updated June 2021). I follow the Food Standard Agency’s guidance on good hygiene practices in food preparation and their Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) processes.
I’m professionally insured through PolicyBee for Public Liability and Product Liability.
For the past few years I’ve enjoyed selling my home-made jam through the hatch of my partner’s boat, Barge Fiodra.
With the first Covid-19 lockdown, we were temporarily stopped from travelling on the boat, so I decided to branch out, set up this website and deliver my jam locally!
As it’s quite a small-scale, one-woman business, taking on a delivery partner would pretty much wipe out any profit. Hence I’m doing my own delivery, by bike, in my local area.
