Beanstalk 20on20 Interview with Annabel Makin-Jones – Founder of Annabel’s Deliciously British.

On our 20on 20 Interview series…”20 minutes with inspirational people from the international food sectors”, we catch up with Annabel Makin-Jones, Founder of Annabel’s Deliciously British.

Annabel is a curator, innovator, and champion of exquisite produce! She has a natural gift for spotting the potential of beautiful British products and, as a third-generation Yorkshire farmer, knows how to put it to effect – Annabel’s goods are all exceptional in quality, but familiar in origin. With an irrepressible enthusiasm, she creates delicacies that celebrate and sustain the diversity of the British countryside.

It was whilst she was at university she decided to grow premium strawberries with her father on their family farm in the heart of Yorkshire. Establishing a reputation for excellence, her strawberry enterprise grew rapidly to supply top restaurants and retailers with the finest UK strawberries.

Over a decade later, she founded Annabel’s Deliciously British – a food brand that produces exquisite products for people who care about taste and provenance. Inspired by the astonishing diversity of the land around her, in 2019 Annabel founded a sister company, Tame and Wild, which produces fruit- and botanical-infused sparkling drinks. Using our wonky fruit, these infusions are unreservedly grown up in flavour, but refreshingly alcohol-free. Today, Annabel’s Deliciously British is one of the best-selling brands in Booths, the chain of high-end supermarkets in the north of England, and supplies Ocado, the world’s largest dedicated online supermarket, as well as a growing list of premium food and beverage retailers and restaurants.
