Boxtopia adores Grantham gingerbread!
Did you know... we supply local company Purple Foods with printed boxes for their famous Grantham Gingerbread? We do, and we are especially proud to have them as one of our customers.
This unique local product has a great deal of history here in Grantham, dating all the way back to 1740 when the recipe was invented by William Eggleston. Recently after years of neglect, Alistair Hawken ‘the Gingerbread King of Grantham’ has resurrected the tradition of making these yummy little biscuits, allowing us to rediscover them all over again.
Alistair produces small batches of his biscuits - all weighed and measured by hand (the good old fashioned way) giving them more individuality and making sure they are baked to his high standard, whilst promoting Grantham’s heritage.
Boxtopia is one of the few companies in the area offering printing on short run bespoke boxes, so Alistair is able to impress his customers by showing them our local speciality in wonderfully printed, professional-looking boxes. These boxes emphasise the quality of the product and give him confidence in his sales. The exciting and positive image on the box also means you are instantly aware of his brand when that delivery comes through.
