Australia pudding manufacturer Pudding Lane is to branch into the UK market by launching three new Christmas desserts.

The New South Wales-based company, claimed to be Australia’s largest producer of ’boiled in the cloth’ puddings, is targeting upmarket retailers such as Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges.

It will launch three puddings - Macadamia and Brandy, traditional Christmas Pudding, and Date and Toffee Log - at the Speciality Fine Food Fair at London Olympia between 2 and 4 September.
