The Nowt Poncy Food Company have recently been nominated for a Local Business Award. A local business with a growing and thoroughly deserved reputation is The Nowt Poncy Food Company Ltd. Based in Water, Rossendale, the Nowt Poncy team – Karen and Jools – are on a self-declared mission: to bring the very best of tasty sauces from around the world to your dinner table, but ‘full of all the good stuff and leaving out all the nasties.’
For Nowt Poncy, the message is that food should be ‘simple and delicious’. It was the brand’s signature premium Tomato and Basil Sauce that first caught people’s attention because, unlike most other commercially made sauces, it doesn’t include any preservatives.
The Nowt Poncy Food Company Ltd is all about producing flavours and aromas that remind you of the places you have visited around the world and of some of the great global cuisines, such as Italian and Indian.
The company is dedicated to authenticity and creating tasty dishes just like the locals would. The focus is on being nutritious and creating sauces that are low in sugar and that are coeliac and vegan friendly. What’s more, the Nowt Poncy brand is also aimed at people who don’t want to spend hours on end in the kitchen. With a Nowt Poncy sauce, the idea is that all you need to do is open the jar, put it into a pan, and add to your favourite ingredients to make a delicious and healthy meal.
Now, the Nowt Poncy Food Company Ltd are receiving industry recognition for their fantastic products. The Nourish Awards are highly regarded and prestigious within the food industry. One of the key aims of the annual awards is to raise awareness about the amount of artificial additives and sugar that is present in our food.
We all know that obesity is on the rise, especially for children. Worryingly, it’s estimated that there as many as 18 million people in the UK with pre-diabetes. To promote the need for healthier food options, the Nourish Awards does not permit any entries that use any sort of artificial sweeteners, additives, or flavour enhancers.
They were finalists in the National Family Business Place awards in July 2019 and then in September 2019, the Nowt Poncy Food Company were winners in the ‘People’s Choice Award’ for their Arrabbiata Sauce. This Nourish Award is particularly coveted as it is voted for by the public. They also won a ‘Merit Award’ for the same sauce.
Nowt Poncy have followed up both these accolades by being nominated for another award. The company has been put forward for the Valley at Work Award at the 2019 Rossendale Business Awards, which aims to recognise and celebrate the many achievements of the local business community across the Valley. As well as being finalists in the National Family Business Place awards in July 2019
