With breaks for lunch and tea, food is something that has become almost synonymous with cricket.
With this in mind, Somerset County Cricket Club are pleased to announce that Filbert’s Fine Foods have become our Official Snack Partner for the 2021 season.
The partnership will see the West Country-based company provide the Club with a wide selection of healthy and delicious snacks throughout the year.
As the fastest growing snack brand in the UK, Filberts Fine Foods has developed a well-deserved reputation for delicious, fusion, artisan snacks that have attracted plenty of plaudits. They have won over 40 awards for taste, flavour, and presentation.
With over a decade in the industry, this is not Filbert’s Fine Foods first foray into sport as they were selected to supply the London 2012 Olympic games with healthy snacks.
SCCC Head of Strength & Conditioning, Joel Tratt, said: ‘It’s great to be working with Filbert’s Fine foods. They will provide us with quality products which will keep the boys going during games. Not only do they fit our nutritional needs, they also taste great and are a top drawer snack. It’s going to be awesome having their food available to us throughout the season and I know they’ll have a positive impact on the team.”
SCCC Commercial Director, Caroline Herbert, added: “We are really pleased to be working with Filbert’s Fine Foods. They are a local company with a global reputation for creating a wide variety of quality products that will certainly help to supplement the healthy eating needs of our players and coaches. The quality of their products speak for themselves and their involvement in the 2012 Olympics demonstrates that this is the type of organisation that we want to be aligning ourselves with.”
Mark Taylor (MD) from Filbert’s Fine Foods said: “We are delighted by the prospect of delivering Mr Filbert’s nutritious snacks to the players and staff this season. As a leading county cricket side our players deserve only the best, and we look forward to freshly roasting some great new recipes to support to their championship bid”.
