Over a number of years we have, developed a catering business called Pottergate Pantry. The pantry provides upwards of 40 meals per day for everyone at the centre and offers a wide range to choose from. The catering is divided between the main kitchen, where the savoury products are made, and the green kitchen, where all the cakes, biscuits and tray bakes are made.
This initially began as a frozen food venture, but we now supply a number of outlets in the community including frozen meals, cakes and tray bakes, seasonal hampers and Christmas cakes which can all be purchased daily from the Pottergate centre.
Tray bakes, cakes and biscuits are provided weekly to:
During the Alnwick flower show, the pantry provided tea, coffee and biscuits from our pop-up cafe.
Our kitchens are awarded five stars on the “scores on the doors”.
Pottergate Pantry and the Potting Shed are part of the Made in Northumberland brand, which brings together all the businesses that are established in our Northumberland County Council learning disabilities day services.
