Highland Fayre Has Launched A New Range Of Luxury Hampers

Highland Fayre, the premier Scottish hamper company for luxury corporate gift hampers, has just released a brand new range of hampers.

The new Highland Fayre hamper range is set to offer a wide selection of goods, including the company’s Royal Banquet, which contains a selection of their finest wines and gourmet food. There is also variety of Scottish hampers, chocolate gift boxes and the traditional port and stilton selections, as well as cases of wine and champagne hampers.

Highland Fayre is also continuing to offer customers the bespoke hamper service, as well as the new range of hampers. The service offers clients the ability to specify the contents of their hamper, as well as the style of packaging and type of delivery service. A large selection of food is on offer and hampers can also be tailored to particular food and drink types.

Highland Fayre has also recently noticed an increase in business from abroad. A spokesperson for Highland Fayre commented on the increasing popularity of its hampers from British expats living overseas:

“Our hampers have always been popular with UK customers and now we’re seeing an increase in orders for our Christmas hampers from British expats currently residing in Australia, China, America and other countries. It can be difficult for those living aboard to arrange gifts for their friends and family back home, but the quick and easy nature of buying and sending a hamper through our website, is proving popular with many who reside abroad.”

The popularity of Highland Fayre hampers abroad can be attributed to the company’s ability to arrange delivery of their hampers throughout Europe, and its partner hamper companies in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

Customers Willing To Wait For Their Orders While Gourmet Food Company Struggles To Find Working Capital

Eight years ago Susan Knapp began making Cinnamon Pear Jelly in her kitchen as a holiday treat. When she realized there was a demand for her healthy and delicious pear creations, she left her lucrative executive position to focus on building her own gourmet food company.

Knapp launched Aunt Sue’s in 1998 with four products, each one winning top awards at the Lake County and California State Fairs. As the company gained momentum, Knapp changed the name to A Perfect Pear from Napa Valley and introduced 15 new products. Now, major wholesale customers include Whole Foods, Bristol Farms, Disney, Luxor Hotel & Casino, and the United States Navy, in addition to hundreds of boutique retailers, wineries, restaurants, and caterers across the nation.

Knapp’s commitment to make healthy products that taste delicious, look beautiful, and are friendly to the environment has propelled her company to the brink of the big leagues. And yet, the business is struggling. “Our problem has never been sales,” Knapp says. “Our biggest challenge is undercapitalization.”

With product rapidly flying off the shelves, Knapp finds herself in a unique position: over $100,000 in pending holiday backorders and not enough cash in reserves to manufacture. The rising costs of raw goods and the current credit crunch had brought a rapid halt to production, and yet, the customers are willing to wait.

“Everyday I get calls from customers who tell me they can no longer find our products,” says customer service rep Kat Patterson. “I have to tell them that we are sold out and unfortunately, we don’t know when we will be able to make more. They always tell me they’ll wait. They love our products and don’t care how long it takes. But I know people are anxious to place their holiday orders.”

“Each time I go to production I am making more product, which is great!” Knapp says. “But that also means I always need more money to keep up with growing demand.”

With SBA and bank loans halted, Knapp is now seeking funding from private parties. In this economic crisis, we’re thinking outside of the box and we’re getting pretty creative.”

Knapp currently needs $200,000 to fill backorders and put inventory on the shelves for the busy holiday season. She could save money by using less expensive ingredients and materials, but refuses to cut corners on quality. “Our commitment is to make healthy, delicious products with all-natural, mostly organic and mostly local ingredients. Our customers expect that and are willing to wait. They know we’ll be back.”

Venulum Reports That Its Venture Capital Lobster Farm Project Has Successfully Managed To Breed Caribbean Spiny Lobsters

Venulum, private wealth management firm based in the British Virgin Islands, has successfully managed to breed Caribbean Spiny Lobsters in commercial quantities in controlled conditions in the British Virgin Islands.

Significant recent catches of juvenile lobsters have been heartening. It is too early to say whether these numbers reflect the early season peak in numbers or the average settlement rate. When compared with previous research, the highly regular settlement rate matches that of the average settlement during a small-scale investigation between 2001-2003.

Giles Cadman, chairman of Venulum said: “It has taken us nearly two years of careful evolution of the collection process but we should now be capable of replicating it throughout the Caribbean, Australia and Asia to provide numerous business opportunities to fishers and young entrepreneurs.

“The numbers are very impressive, indicating that settlement is spatially uniform and that collection systems perform equally well at depth as on the surface and so the entire harvest can remain subsurface away from boat traffic.”

The lobster farm has been built at the Pockwood Pond site on Tortola, the largest island in the British Virgin Islands, and should be fully operational once hurricane protection has been completed on-site early next year.

The farm site is progressing with general finishing and fabrication work moving to completion. The Venulum management team has approved the construction of a mould for large-scale fabrication of tanks according to precise requirements. Experimental storage systems have been deployed in favourable deep water locations in the hope that these will be useful as holding accommodation for ‘post larvae’ while farm infrastructure is completed. If effective, Venulum hope these devices will prove vital in reducing the cost and time commitment of early culture operations.

The collection and breeding programme is based on knowledge gained from research undertaken by Rob Power, Director of Caribbean Sustainable Fisheries, who undertook his research in conjunction with the World Fish Centre. “I have been working on the principle of a sustainable business model for over ten years,” explains Rob “and we are continuing our ongoing research and development programme to finesse the process, with the emphasis on sustainability.”

He adds “Caribbean Sustainable Fisheries also intends working with local communities to build small scale lobster farming operations offering business opportunities to fishermen whose wild resource has been depleted to the point that it is no longer viable to continue fishing.

“Our aim is to produce consistent, high quality lobster that seafood purchasers can recognise as both sustainable and consistently good” explains Cadman. “Venulum has a large wine business and by working with many small wine producers, we have the experience and understanding to support them. The same principles apply to the fishing industry and we are using our experience to create a business model that can be easily replicated without the need for significant capital cost.”

With the steady progress to date, we can look forward to the first market sized lobsters in around 18 months from now.
