William Kendall,
former CEO

"I have been working closely with Micah for over 20 years. His understanding of food is extraordinary. He has a fine nose and palate and an encyclopaedic knowledge of  food. He won't stop working until he has produced the perfect result."

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Alison Lea-Wilson,
Co -Founder

"We have worked with Brandt & Micah on a number of successful products using Halen Mon, Anglesey Sea Salt, as a seasoning. You'd struggle to find people who care more about flavour than them. Their attention to detail, commitment to ingredients and respect for food never fail to impress us."

Steve Kearns,
Managing Director

"Micah has been nothing short of a superstar for Cawston Press...he has a unique ability in my opinion to blend fabulously tasty creations, with a clear commercial acumen and therefore an understanding of how to make an all round winner"
