Fred. Olsen trials produce from three local Suffolk suppliers

St. Peter’s Brewery’s ‘G-Free’ gluten-free beer

Stokes Sauces, based in Rendlesham, is the latest Suffolk company to join the onboard menu. The luxury condiment maker joins St. Peter’s Brewery, based near Bungay, and a selection of products from Southwold-based Adnams’ in recent months.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is introducing a range of food and beverage products onboard its fleet produced locally to its Suffolk headquarters.

The three brands met with Fred. Olsen at its Ipswich headquarters, where staff enjoyed a tasting session of the new products. These included St. Peter’s Brewery’s ‘G-Free’ gluten-free beer; Adnams’ ‘Ghost Ship 4.5%’ and low alcohol ‘Ghost Ship 0.5%’ and Stokes Sauces’ new ‘squeezy’ range of Tomato Ketchup, Brown Sauce and Real Mayonnaise, as well as its Fig Relish, Red Onion Marmalade, and Cider and Horseradish Mustard, among others.

Thomas Rennesland, Hotel Operations Director at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines said: ‘We know that our guests will love these products as much as we do, and it is great that we can offer them a ‘taste of Suffolk’ whilst cruising all around the world with Fred. Olsen.’

Working in partnership

Fred. Olsen will be working closely with all three companies to gauge feedback from guests sampling the various products across its ocean fleet – Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch – and will be enhancing product lines as the partnerships develop.

The cruise line also recently appointed Peter Deer as its new managing director
