The Kooky Cake Company is supplying a range of cake pops to Wholefoods’ first Scottish outlet.
The American natural and organic food retailer approached the Reading-based bakery to produce a range of five cake pops using natural ingredients for its new Giffnock store in Glasgow. They contain no artificial ingredients, colourings or preservatives.
Kathryn Carter, founder of The Kooky Cake Company, said of the new partnership with Wholefoods: “I couldn’t quite believe it when they approached me to talk about supplying some products to this new store. We currently sell our baked goods online and to independent farm and coffee shops in Berkshire, so this is a very exciting venture and we have finally branched out in supplying to an international food chain.”
The range will include two milk chococolate products, one decorated with chocolate shavings and the other with a chocolate flower. Other varieties include three vanilla cake pops, one covered in grated coconut, another decorated with all-natural sprinkles and the third with a freeze-dried blueberry lilac coating.
Cake pops will be sold individually at the store’s bakery counter from the 16 November on a specially-made branded stand.
Carter added: “We really like the concept of the Wholefoods brand as it fits in with our all-natural moto. We’re very pleased that the company is looking to oursource more of its products as it gives independent bakers like myself the opportunity to launch into the mainstream market.
"We are hoping that this opportunity with the Glasgow store could lead to our products appearing in Wholefoods’ London outlets in the future."
Wholefoods currently has 310 outlets throughout North America and the UK, with five based in the London area.
