Genuine Jersey has announced three new additions to its membership of local producers and makers, including an award-winning cake baker, a driftwood artist and an animal lover specialising in paper cut prints.
One of the additions is island-newcomer, Harriet Docker, who has brought the award-winning Little Loaves cake business to the island.
Speaking of her membership, Harriet said that “When I was a visitor to the island I always searched out the Genuine Jersey hallmark as I like to shop local. Having now moved here it was important that my cakes also bore this symbol as a sign that they have been through stringent checks and are of local provenance. I’m excited to see how the island will influence my flavours and cake designs.”

Meanwhile, new member and art teacher David Le Boutillier has been making use of his retirement by setting up a small craft business called Shoreline Reflections. David collects and recycles beach driftwood and sometimes adds oil painting decoration to put alongside his collection of framed mirrors, wall hangings and sculptures.

The third member is Kat Read, who last year created online store Rocque Paper Scissors, which sells personalised paper cut prints and gifts.
Being environmentally conscious, Kat set up the business with a desire to support animal protection efforts, donating 10% of her profits to animal charities. Speaking about her membership, Kat stated that she was, “...really proud to become a Genuine Jersey member and part of the culture, taste and tapestry of the island.”
Genuine Jersey Chief Executive Officer John Garton said: “It’s really encouraging during these difficult past few months to be able to welcome new members to the Genuine Jersey community.”
“With there being such a drive towards buying local I am hopeful that our new members will build on their current success and with our help reach their business goals.”
