goat’s cheese with a creamy texture, similar to Port Salut. The cheese is coated in
annatto giving it a distinctive orange rind. This cheese was named the best British

four months and mould ripened. It has a creamy texture with a sweet flavour and
a distinctly earthy finish. This cheese won the silver medal at the British Cheese
Awards 2012.
College White

white soft cheese, similar to brie. This cheese won the silver menu. This cheese
won the silver medal at the British Cheese Awards 2012.

Harbour & Jones (H&J), offering the best and most
imaginative food, believing that great food comes from
great ingredients using seasonal British produce. Our
team is passionate about food, ingredients, provenance
and seasonality of the product they offer.
Here are few of our suppliers and supported activities.
Still and sparkling water
Our bottled water is filtered, carbonated and bottled on site using the Vivreau
system, which means that we do not need to buy in bottled water.
British Hen Welfare Trust

eggs throughout its business. H&J continues to press for changes in the catering
industry to ensure that free-range becomes the
minimum standard.

The MCS is a charity dedicated to the protection of our seas, beaches and marine
life. H&J is an active supporter of the MCS and follows its guide on which fish can
be eaten sustainably.
Little Hyde Farm honey
In a bid to halt the rapid decline of the honey bee,
H&J sponsors hives in Ingatestone, Essex, run by one
of its chefs, Martin Rookard. We use this honey at the Royal Society.
Salmon
Our salmon is supplied by Loch Duart in Sutherland, where priority is given to the
health and welfare of the fish and to long-term protection of the environment. Loch
Duart was the first salmon producer to be awarded the RSPCA’s ‘Freedom Food’
recognition.
Rare Breeds
Our sausages are made from rare breed Middle White pigs from Goldsmiths &
Sons farm in West Sussex; this breed is classed as ‘vulnerable’ by the Rare Breeds
Survival Trust. We make some fantastic pork-pies using Gloucester Old Spot pigs.

orchards to assist with picking the fruit.
