Husband and wife team Robert and Ailsa Latimer say they believe the future is very bright for the the next group of the firm’s employees.

The entrepreneurial pair responsible for launching and running the highly regarded deli, café and online business take great pride in supporting the careers of their staff and giving them the opportunity to earn while they learn.

Ailsa said: “We are always looking to grow our business and if that happens at the same time as helping those within it achieve their ambitions, then all the better.

“Whether that’s through generating wages to finance their education, learning to drive, running a car or just getting the opportunity to experience a busy working environment and all the skills that can develop, we’re happy to support them as long as they’re committed.”

Robert added: “We are passionate about ensuring our staff are properly developed. We run apprenticeship programmes, we are flexible how we approach part and full time employment to help fit individual need and we always look to encourage talent.

“As an employer it is great to see people grow and achieve things, even if that means ultimately they move on.”

Ailsa added: “What we hope to instil in our younger workers, and indeed all our staff, is a great work ethic and an understanding that you get out what you put in.”
