Artisan bakery NISI’s has appointed Cotswold Fayre to distribute its individually wrapped and boxed Italian biscuit products throughout the UK, as part of its bid to double turnover in 2012.

The New Forest-based business, which supplies handmade biscotti and macaroons to local shops and delis, including Jamie Oliver’s Recipease outlets, is also undergoing a distribution trial with Falcon, which brought the Byron Bay Cookie to the UK.

Denise Stevenson, owner of NISI’s, said: "The flow-wrapped single product has the potential to revolutionise the biscotti market in the UK as they are made using premium ingredients and priced competitively. As a young business, we need to maximise all channels of distribution to achieve this."
