Orange zest and lemon zest have so many uses within the food industry.

Orange zest is used in the manufacture of various foods and sweets from mulled cider, tea, muffins, biscuits, cakes and even treats to tempt the tastebuds, such as chocolates and desserts with a zestiness of orange.

Lemon zest is often used in cakes, pies, biscuits, sweets, jams, curds and salads, among many other uses.

At Christmas, our consumers are looking for a taste explosion with which to wow their family and friends, often spending more on luxury items to ensure their guests leave happy and contented.

Breakfast can start with jams and marmalades and curds on freshly baked bread.

Dinner often includes Duck (for those who find turkey a little bland) with a wonderful orangey marmalade or sauce.

Christmas cake is a real after dinner feature and is generally packed with all sorts of fruits and nuts, including Lemon Zest and Orange Zest (and of course, copious amounts of alcohol too).

Sugared lemon Zest and Orange Zest always look great on any Christmas treat.

So when it comes to producing the very best Orange Zest or Lemon Zest for your food products, we obtain ours by grating gently to extract only the outermost part, not the shell, since the shell could result in a bitter and unpleasant twist to the taste.
