The Nowt Poncy Food Company

Is a small, quality sauces manufacturer and retailer based in Rossendale.

Their ethos is all about using the best and smallest amount of ingredients as possible. They pride themselves on locally sourcing as many ingredients as possible and always endeavour to work with local suppliers from packaging to ingredients. Terry their head of marketing and sales explained “ We use ready prepped veg from Booths wholesale in Preston. Its local and it’s quality produce. We also at times use Sharrocks wholesale. We use a company in Leyland for our packaging and we use a UK provider for our glass” Both Booths and Sharrocks pride themselves on using local suppliers too – so you can see this is truly about local supporting local.

That amazing jam or chutney that you make that all of your friends say should be sold in the shops? Well for anyone wondering what it takes to start making their recipe on a larger scale they have a development kitchen in Rossendale . Terry explained that there is a definite north/south divide in manufacturing costs. “We consult to small producers who are considering taking their product from stove to shop.   We pride ourselves on being fully transparent around costs  and the work involved- theres a lot of legality that goes with it. We specialise in helping small businesses take their product from dream to reality” They are Salsa accredited – which is the food safety and standards regulator. “So our clients can have full faith in us.  We source the best ingredients and traceability is paramount so we only use companies that meet their quality standards” You can find out more about salsa here – SALSA (
