Talks to export St Peter’s South Elmham ale chutney

A chutney made with ale from St Peter's South Elmham could be exported across the Atlantic.

Stokes Sauces, which produces a real ale relish is in talks to export the Suffolk Mud Real Ale Chutney to the US.

The sauce is made in collaboration with St Peter's Brewery, near Bungay.

Made with St Peter's Best Bitter, the chutney is one of several relishes produced by Stokes Sauces under its Suffolk Mad brand. The company also has an extensive product range of preserves and savoury sauces.

The chutney has proved such a successful brand since its creation last year and is now the subject of significant export conversations.

Rick Sheepshanks, managing director of Stokes Sauces, said: 'We are enormously proud of our collaboration with St Peter's Brewery – which has given way to the creation of both our real ale chutney and our wholegrain mustard with St Peter's Brewery Honey Porter.

'The popularity of the chutney in particular has meant that we are now following up consumer demand with some interesting export discussions and could be distributing the product to State-side foodies as early as this summer.'
