Ark of Taste and Booths Featured in BBC Article on UK’s Forgotten Foods

The work of promoting some of the UK's most unique but 'forgotten' products is one with which many producers, chefs, and organisations are on board, as was covered in a recent BBC article.

Just as the Ark of Taste aims to promote awareness of these ‘forgotten foods’ and these small producers, Booths supermarket is working to make these products more easily accessible by stocking them in their shops. The BBC article highlights these efforts along with specific small producers of great British foods. Read the article here to find out more.

Morecambe Bay potted shrimps, Jersey Black butter, and Double Curd Lancashire cheese are three of the Ark of Taste products featured in the article but many more unique British foods are mentioned including fresh blood black pudding, traditionally cured York ham, and more. With this increased exposure to consumers and continued highlighting of the great quality of these products, they can make the move from ‘forgotten foods’ to being celebrated as defining British cuisine.

Page through all of the products listed in the Ark of Taste and read more about their unique stories.

Find out more about Booths, their range of products, and their work with producers of ‘Forgotten Foods’.
