Confirmation that KC leads the world in Ethical and sustainable Caviar production.
Michelin star chefs across the country are endorsing the quality every week.
The media interest has been phenomenal, with articles every month both local and National. Live radio and coverage by several TV programs, with "Countryfile" in April and "Back to the land" in May.
Marketing for this year will see KC at the Great Yorkshire show and at every stage of the Tour de Yorkshire. With events planned for London, later in the year.
We have a significant order confirmed with a Super market chain for next Christmas and interst from high profile London stores.
We estimate that by 2020 there will be 3million 5-6 year old sturgeon killed by the traditional producers, in an effort to meet the increasing demand for Caviar. Why? Money!
The KC process involves naturally spawnedeggs which are harvested and turned into Caviar, year after year, until that fish is eventually retired into a protected conservation lake or river.
Production is currently from our farm on the outskirts of Leeds, with plans to open 3-4 more farms around the UK and Ireland on a Franchise/partnership basis. Targetting markets such as China, USA, Europe over the next 2-3 years, not forgetting the UK client base.
Mark is planning to have some farm open days during the summer months. More details later.
An enjoyable day, we met lots of interesting Yorkshire folk, plus a few from elsewhere.
The guest chefs included the Legend Brian Turner, Steph Moon, Chris Harrison and John Robinson did some fabulous meals some of which included our Caviar.
Hundreds of visitors stopped at Stand number 3 and sampled our Caviar. Most were intrigued to find out about the plight of the sturgeon in the wild and how our sustainable program could help long-term.
