This season’s blog talks about us – well indulge us a little won’t you! It’s our 70th Anniversary, yes; it’s incredible to believe – 70 years in the foodservice business. We’ve been passionate about food for a long time and our enthusiasm and love for great quality food continues today. It all started with two brothers, Clarrie and Arthur Surcouf who, in 1950, started selling chicken eggs from their van to local hotels. From these humble roots Easenmyne has grown into one the islands biggest and highly valued food distributors under the guidance of chairman Peter Sourcouf.
Today retailers and chefs can source some of the finest ingredients available on the market. This is made even more possible with the partnership between Easenmyne and Brakes UK. Brakes, who also started as a family business, have been operating for over 50 years. We share the same values of quality, reliability, innovation and trust. Together we are always looking for the right products and new and innovative ideas to keep the food we offer fresh and exciting.
We will be celebrating our 70th Anniversary with one of the largest Pan Island Food Roadshows ever staged in the Channel Islands:
Guernsey on April 21st at the St Pierre Park Hotel
Jersey on 22nd April at the Pomme D’or Hotel
On the day we will be demonstrating the latest in molecular foods, and one of the highlights of the day will be a presentation by John Stone. They will showcase their dry aged, grass fed, Irish beef. Chefs will discover ways to make a delicious moist beef burger using a blend of the finest chuck, brisket, mid rib cuts and the juiciest dry aged fat that helps to retain flavour and tenderness even when the patty is well done.
Chefs from various restaurants, cafes and care homes from across the the island will have the opportunity to taste new products and watch the lastest cooking techniques at the tradeshow. “Our parntership with Brakes enables us to offer retailers and chefs the best possible choices on the market at the best price,’ says Martina McGibney, Commericial Director for Easenmyne.
