The Gourmet Trotter Company Limited is an independent, family business, run from a country farm house in Surrey, England. Whilst attending an evening musical concert at Hampton Court Palace and suffering the strain of Humping the Hamper, we inadvertently stumbled across a gap in the market which called for a more convenient method of transporting one's own alfresco delights from the car to one's chosen picnic spot.
After help from an innovative design company we took our design, in its infancy, to a manufacturer who was qualified to take on the production challenge. We scoured countless sourcing fairs both here and abroad in order to find the quintessential country dining accessories to complete the image we were endeavouring to achieve.
Being extremely familiar with prestigious events that this product is designed for such as Glyndebourne, Proms in the Park, Henley Regatta, equestrian events, summer galas, school speech days, to name just a few, and aided by our own previous design experience, we feel we have appreciated and delivered the exacting standards required.
