Atkins and Potts, the award-winning family-run speciality food producer, has launched a branding update to celebrate the company’s seventh anniversary. All Atkins and Potts condiments, jellies, relishes, chutneys and mayonnaises are now in a new shape jar with updated labels.
The new jar is bespoke to Atkins and Potts and the cap is deeper than the cap previously used. Going forward these ranges that have previously been supplied in two different jars will be supplied in the same jar, giving the range a united brand feel.
The brand name takes a more prominent position on the new labels and the added strapline ‘Inspired Dining’ reflects the Atkins and Potts philosophy; adding inspirational finishing touches to classic recipes and meal occasions. Visibility of the product in the jar has been maintained showing the natural colours and great textures of real ingredients.
There have also been several recipe improvements. The Wasabi Mayonnaise and Sun-dried Tomato Mayonnaise recipes have been improved and there is a new Spiced Pear and Date Chutney now available.
Atkins and Potts has been established for over seven years in the village of Ball Hill, on the Hampshire/Berkshire border. Atkins and Potts creates, produces and distributes classic recipes for the contemporary palate. The owners, Nicola and Robert Young, both come from farming families and had both gone into the restaurant business before their tastes in good food and good company brought them together.
They married in 2004, and introduced their first range of gourmet dressings in 2005. Since then Robert and Nicola have created some great classic recipes and some modern innovations, whether for family dining or home entertaining. Their Inspired Dining range provides those special finishing touches so you and your guests can enjoy a restaurant quality gourmet meal at home.
Atkins and Potts have won British Great Taste Gold Awards for products across many of their product ranges:
• Red Onion & Jalapeno Relish

Nicola Young explains their outlook, “The heart of our kitchen philosophy is the use of quality ingredients producing great flavours and textures. We use a lot of the key ingredients not just token amounts. Our ingredients are sourced on quality; price is the secondary consideration.”
