Meet Diana of The Shortbread Company

When I decided to teach my little girls to make shortbread it was something I thought of that wouldn’t cause too much mess, while being easy enough and fun to make. As we were baking, the idea came that the girls should start selling the shortbread to family and friends. After a couple of months they got bored but people still wanted shortbread! A few months later I relaunched and rebranded the company. After a few attempts, we finally achieved the perfect recipe. Then we added flavours and then of course got people to taste test.

Our process is simple; we use a traditional method by hand and will never change that. The basic recipe is simple then we add the flavours making the shortbread unique, each having its own personality. Everything is made with care and currently baked to order. Our unique flavours make it an extra special treat, with flavours like Terry’s Chocolate Orange to passion fruit and mango!

Selling online has always been my main focus. I learned more about my customers, from how to better serve them and knowing what they really want. My biggest challenge is remaining consistent in order to see significant growth. It's easy to get distracted, challenges will always be there but dealing with them when they do come is vital for success. I believe we all have a part to play when looking after our planet and the environment. It's important to minimise waste and re-use and recycle where possible. Everything is still done at home, from baking to packaging.

Our shortbread is my go-to biscuit when I want a hot drink, every time I take that bite it's like I never tasted shortbread so good!


What’s the first restaurant you’re going to visit? The first place you’ll travel to?

The first place I’m going to travel to will definitely be somewhere that has a beach! It's a choice between Jamaica or Dubai.

What is your lazy go-to / comfort food dish when cooking? Do you have a recipe?

My favourite has to be lasagne…lasagne and chips! Mmm delicious!

What’s the strangest dish someone has used your products for? Have you tried it?

Not sure if this is strange but shortbread and custard. I have tasted it and it is divine :)
