Meet Our Producers

At Hay Hampers we only ever select our products from suppliers we admire. We look for authenticity and integrity in production methods and aim to build close working relationships with them to ensure we are create hamper gifts that taste divine every time. 

Over the 30 years that we have been trading we have built some very close relationships with a number of producers local to us so that we can visit with ease and understand their product completely. In recent years we have cast our tasting net further to European producers because we passionately believe in the products. Wherever possible with these producers we aim to be their sole distributors in the UK so that we can guarentee that you will not find these products anywhere else in Britain, and you can be reassured that we have visited the producers and seen their production in person.

We think our supplier producers are wonderful and want to share a bit about their stories so that you can understand the gift that you are giving as well as we do.
