    What’s your role within Charlie & Ivy’s? Technically I am the Managing Director of the company, I would like to say that I am the innovator behind the brand however, I don’t think the rest of the team would agree and I have to admit they would probably be right! Whirlwind would probably be the best way to describe my job role, coming up with ideas whilst our fantastic team make it all happen.

    What is your favourite product and why? I love the Garlic Oregano and Balsamic bread dipper, It has the most amazing combination of flavours and once I start on it I really struggle to stop again!!

    What is your favourite aspect of your job? What I really love about the job is taking on new and exciting challenges.

    What is your favourite thing to do out of work? like to spend time with my family, our kids (Charlie and Ivy) are still quite young so I enjoy spending any time with them that I can get. I have also been known to enjoy an occasional pint at the local pub, and when the mood takes me I quite enjoy running especially out in the country around where we live.

    What’s your role within Charlie & Ivy’s? My job title says Brand (manager) sales, which involves overseeing most of production, sales, shows & stockists. In reality I fetch Adam his morning skinny latte with hazelnut syrup!

    What is your favourite product and why? I really like the Smoked Garlic and Black Peppercorn bread dipper, it is so much more than a dipper, great for frying a steak or drizzling over a nice halibut before popping in the oven...

  • Matthew Dixon

    What’s your role within Charlie & Ivy’s? My job title is technically ‘production manager’ within that role I am responsible for making sure that we always have the right amount of stock at the right time, in reality I do so much more than that from helping run the oil press to working on the stall at various events.

    What is your favourite product and why? Our Smoked mayo, just because it’s a little bit different to what else is on the market and it’s really tasty!

  • Akalia Maclaurin

    What’s your role within Charlie & Ivy’s? It’s loosely termed Marketing Support but this is a fairly organic term which I’m sure will change as the job role grows and changes. I make sure our social media is current and up to date and support Jen in any way she needs with the website. I’m also there to support and offer ideas when a marketing campaign is being planned. 

    What is your favourite product and why? Lemon oil – because it’s so versatile. It’s lovely on savoury dishes, particularly fish, and its delicious on salads as well but I also use it to bake with (chocolate cake made with lemon oil was a happy accident that worked really well!)

    What is your favourite aspect of your job?Never knowing what I may end up doing when i come into work plus I get to learn new aspects of the job all the time!

    What is your favourite thing to do out of work? Running – it clears my head, puts things into perspective and I get proper country fresh air at the same time. If I’m not running I’ll be refereeing my kids and, when they’re asleep, I drink wine!
