Northern Irish artisan food
BITETOSAVOUR is a Northern Irish artisan food showcasing business, set up in 2014 by young entrepreneur, Jenna Stevenson, who was born and raised in Kilkeel. It was during a trip to Australia with her husband in 2009 that Jenna’s passion for artisan food started whilst working at the Pukara olive grove. She loved the product so much that when she returned home she started to import it. Doing the markets in Northern Ireland she realised that there was an abundance of amazing Northern Irish artisan producers, all with incredible stories behind them, who all seemed to struggle to tell their stories and market their products.
So, how did the name come about? Jenna explains:
“If you taste two almost identical jams, but find out that one is made in a huge factory overseas and the other is handmade on an AGA using home grown fruits just around the corner from you, it not only tastes better, but it feels better eating it. It feels right. Food provenance is really important to people nowadays, as is the support of local producers. So with that one bite you savour it all – the flavour, the heritage, the support of local producers – and that is how Bite to Savour was born! We then became all cool and ‘on trend’ making it BITETOSAVOUR.”
What started as a stall at various markets then became a website and then a small retail space in Studio Souk, Belfast. Today BITETOSAVOUR has several retail spaces throughout Northern Ireland, including their main retail outlet and HQ at MADE in Mourne, where they also prepare website and bespoke corporate orders for corporate clients both here and overseas. To date BITETOSAVOUR have designed, curated and shipped branded corporate boxes as far as Dubai, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, America, China, Spain, Italy, Belgian and Sweden.
