A FOOD company from Stroud have celebrated the sale of their one millionth porridge pot by donating some of their funds to a meningitis charity.

Wolfys porridge, which is owned and manufactured by Kitchen Garden Foods, have celebrated the sale by using a portion of funds from their Black Friday sales to donate to the charity Meningitis Now, who are also based in Stroud.

Meningitis Now is the first meningitis patient group in the world and they have invested millions in research that has played a key part in the introduction of life-saving vaccines.

James Horwood, commercial director and joint owner of Kitchen Garden Foods, said: “A couple of weeks ago we sold our one millionth Wolfys pot and we’ve been over the moon ever since.”

James said the sale inspired the company to do something a bit different in the run up to Black Friday.

“We’ve been running a ‘get 15 give 15’ campaign, whereby our Wolfys website customers can enjoy a 15% discount on everything, and we’ll donate another 15% of their sale to Meningitis Now.

“We decided to donate to Meningitis Now because they are a local charity, but nationally known. As Wolfys is sold up and down the UK, we wanted to choose a charity that was local to us but also known nationally.

“Email subscribers have also been getting an extra special discount code to give themselves a bit more money off, or give a bit more to Meningitis Now.”

The offer, which ends tomorrow, December 6, has been running since the company made their landmark sale.

James Moinet, operations director and Joint owner of Kitchen Garden Foods, said: “My aunt Barbara Moinet set Kitchen Garden up 30 years ago, and it’s thanks to her, and her husband Robin, that we have this amazing platform to launch Wolfys from.

“It’s been over two years since she passed away, but I know she’d be delighted with the news of our one millionth pot. I don’t think it’ll be long until we’ve despatched our two millionth pot.”
