About us

About Helen and Bob

We are Helen and Bob and we set up the Ludlow Nut Company in 2004, originally working from the basement of our Georgian house in Ludlow. Previously, I was Director of Travel in a company based in the City of London and Bob pursued a career in Local Government.

Helen focuses on customer service and administration.
Bob is recipe developer-in-chief. He has a flair for flavour combination and is obsessed with texture (very important for porridge!).

Our Story 

Escaping from city and corporate life is a dream for so many people, and that’s exactly what we did, we upped sticks from London and moved to the medieval market town of Ludlow in Shropshire.

We share a lifelong love of food and cooking so Ludlow appealed because it has a phenomenal food buzz, thanks to its numerous specialist food shops, artisan food producers, a twice-monthly Local Producers market and the renowned Ludlow Food and Drink Festival. It has every style of dining you could wish for, from casual, bistro style to fine dining.


Turning a Dream into Reality

Moving to Ludlow turned out to be life changing for us. Business fascinated me to the extent that I completed an MBA while working full time. I had often thought of setting up my own business and being my own boss.
Bob and I are also interested in healthy eating and nutrition; I’m a keen runner and cyclist and recently completed a cycle from Ludlow to Paris for which I raised over £1,000 for Kidney Research UK and Bob walked across the Pyrenees from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea.

The challenge of running my own business and my interest in nutrition and healthy eating inspired me to take the plunge with Bob and set up the Ludlow Nut Company. Our very first products were quality, heart-healthy dried fruits and nuts. 

Where Are We Now?

We moved into our new state of the art 8,000sq ft purpose built premises in 2018 and make a wide range of healthy food for busy people including our award winning “free from” luxury porridges, mueslis, granolas and a range of “all natural” nut butters. We also supply an array of best quality nuts, seeds, dried fruits and sweet and savoury snacks. So, whatever you are after do check our selection. Sometimes a little indulgence is a good thing.
Wonderful customer feedback tells us we’re getting flavour and quality right! The Guild of Fine Foods thinks so too and has awarded us five gold stars.

We also co-manufacture products for other companies including Boundless, Yumello and The Squirrel Sisters and have developed a range of “white label” products for Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Fortnum & Mason, The Newt in Somerset, and are currently collaborating with Willy’s Apple Cider Vinegar to produce a roasted & flavoured almond using their ACV

"Bought 2 of these for Birthday Presents (nut gift trays) both friends absolutely loved them said they made a great alternative to getting chocolates. Ordered them one day and they arrived the next day and we didn't use no special delivery either. Absolutely Fantastic will be ordering more in the future."
