Crackers for local chutney!

David Esberger, a self-confessed ‘mad inventor’, has been churning out chutneys in Lincoln for almost 50 years.

He was inspired to create his business, ‘Just Like Your Grannies’, so he could share his creations with other flavour fanatics. He now blends and packs over 80 cases of chutney a month for Lincolnshire Co-op.

As well as sourcing local Bramley apples, David grows chillies close to home and delicately balances the heat of some of the world’s most fiery chillies with fruity flavours so they can be paired with cheeses, crackers and much more.

David recently won a nation award, Local Producer of the Year at the Pioneer Awards 2017, for his pioneering approach to redeveloping his product.

Looking to the market, David adapted his recipe to appeal to gluten free customers and re-designed his packaging with the help of Lincolnshire Co-op.

Just Like Your Grannies Scotch Bonnet and Naga Chill chutneys are currently stocked across 70 of Lincolnshire Co-op’s food stores through the Love Local range.

You can get 10% dividend on all Love Local products in the run up to Lincolnshire Day on Sunday 1st October 2017! Find out more here.
