Byam Trotter founded Trotters Independent Condiments in 2009 after his mother gave him the recipe for mostarda, a delicious condiment she had discovered in Italy. Production began in the family kitchen, with Byam selling his product at farmers’ markets and in farm shops and delicatessens. By 2010 the business had grown in product range, quantity and employees, so Byam was forced to find his own kitchen. The business now supplies over 300 retailers, restaurants and caterers – including the Coop, the Balmoral Hotel and Harvey Nichols – and has contracts with leading brands; Byam also has aspirations to crack the international market. Byam will take us through his journey from concept to successful business, talking about the highs and lows of being an entrepreneur in Fife. Byam has promised us the opportunity to sample some of the delicious products from the Trotters Independent Condiments label.
