We are delighted to announce the launch of Cleaner Products Sussex. The distribution agreement has been awarded to Ben Goldsmith who has been in discussing with our CEO Pete Reilly for some time. Pete Reilly commented “ we are implementing a strategy of steady expansion to our national distribution capability, we need to be 100% sure we are taking on the right partners and Ben Goldsmith is undoubtedly the ideal candidate to partner us in Sussex”.
Ben trained as a chef, and worked his way up the ladder across some superb businesses, before taking control of his first kitchen at 22, during this year he also won Young Chef category, in the Sussex Food and Drink awards. He diversified his career by moving into Operations Management and Product Development, then larger scale production which led to him being headhunted by Small Batch Coffee, to take on a new role for them as Head of Food. He made the decision to broaden his expertise and to challenge himself by starting his own consultancy business offering advice using the knowledge and success within these fields. Ben’s partner Amy is an accountant and will be assisting with bookkeeping and administration.
Cleaner Products managing director Nathan Reilly will be assisting Ben Goldsmith with the development of the Sussex project.

What do we do?
We think like your customer, identify the real value and benefits of your products or services, and craft well-written content that tells customers what they need to know.
Often it’s harder for people immersed in the business to see those key messages clearly – ‘wood for the trees’ syndrome – and express them in a professional way. Or you just don’t have the time.

We cover most marketing and editorial needs – from websites and press releases, case studies and articles, to brochures and corporate responsibility reports.
You should get the most from your content. So we will re-purpose it for different channels. And advise on digital marketing strategy. Feel free to ask anything:

It’s official Ellite Jus are now a trusted partner of Cleaner Products, Ellite Jus is set become a major hit in the hotel and restaurant sector and Cleaner Products are delighted to welcome Robert and Madalina on-board. As all chefs will know it takes a long time to produce a quality stock and the Jus prepared by Ellite is no different, to produce their stock it is made from the juice that is given off by roasting honey glazed veal bones and simmering this with vegetables and spices to pack in the flavours, the process takes up to 30 hours to produce such a fine product, it is gluten and lactose free and does not contain celery or nuts so it’s very allergy friendly.
With kitchens under pressure to reduce costs while keeping the standards high this new project ticks a number of boxes, it take a great deal of time and energy costs to prepare a high class Jus and being able to buy a high quality product in litre sachets is a no brainer, try the product for yourself and you will see that you no longer require a stock pot and can make better use of the space it takes up.
You can request a sample by contacting Madalina ( Maddy) on 0778 9514 614 or visit their website at ellitejusltd.com

Possible our most successful marketing idea to date is what we call ‘trusted partners’, this is a concept whereby we select companies who are active within the hospitality sector and help promote their business through our marketing channels to our client base. Unlike so many other advertising opportunities that are available there is no charge for the service provided that our partner also has our best interest at heart and promotes Cleaner Products where possible. We launched this concept almost a decade ago and it has gathered momentum at a very steady pace, it is rewarding for us to be able to recommend our ‘trusted partners’ and see them grow their business, in return we achieve a high level of new business through recommendations which is the icing on the cake.
So what and who are our trusted partners - at Cleaner Products we work with a selected range of suppliers that compliments the services we provide, they are the ‘cream of the crop’ and like us the majority of our partners are family run operations and have the competitive edge when it comes to price. It is common knowledge that a family business is far more likely to deliver a more consistent service and when family business’s team up in this way they become a formidable force. Our ’trusted partners’ range from companies who supply Food Hygiene Solution to Washroom Service, Front of House Training to Fire protection, Pest Control to Restaurant Consultancy and IT to HR. We also have a number of partners who supply food goods including Dry Goods, Bread, Ice Cream and now a superb coffee supplier. All of our partners are selected because like us they are willing to go that extra mile to provide a service that is beyond the norm which is why we can recommend all of our trusted partners with complete confidence.

A note about sourdough
Our Signature Sourdough Breads uses a liquid leaven that is over 6 years old. Having developed an amazing flavour over the years.Our breads are slow proved, free from chemicals and preservatives, and are made using traditional methods of baking. We deliver breads with a fantastic taste and great "keeping" values. "Sourdough is more digestible than standard loaves and more nutritious too. Lactic acids make the vitamins and minerals in the flour more available to the body by helping neutralise the phytates in flour that would interfere with their absorption. The acids slow down the rate at which glucose is released into the blood-stream and lower the bread's glycaemic index (GI), so it doesn't cause undesirable spikes in insulin. They also render the gluten in flour more digestible and less likely to cause food intolerance." The Guardian

The Ice Cream Union was founded in 2006 in Battersea, London, by brother Alex and Franco who wanted to share their passion for artisan ice cream with other like minded flavour conscious individuals. Alex and Franco grew up in Argentina a country that take ice cream very seriously. It was here that the brother became inspired to create their own style of "Helado Artesanal" (that's artisan ice cream to you and me), and go on to produce the amazing array of flavours that are available today. It's not just the ingredients and specialist equipment that makes their ice cream so good, it's the deep understanding behind the science of making ice cream that sets them apart. They monitor the recipes they create using a series of objectives and scientific measurements, this means that the Union never settle for second best and can ascertain where and how a recipe can be improved.
