Showcasing YOUR business expertise LIVE on Radio

Jacob and Sam James the Co owners of Granny Tigg’s

Granny Tigg’s Co owners Jacob and Sam James tell us their fascinating story of how they came to start up in business.

From Miss New Zealand to Granny Tigg, this dressing has shared a remarkable journey of over 12,000 miles.

In 1948, at the tender age of 16, a pretty Kiwi girl by the name of Anne Webb entered the competition of Miss Aotearoa (pronounced Air-tee-a-row-a) – the Maori name for New Zealand. Anne was encouraged to put her name in the hat by her father. As you might have guessed – she won, and so began the journey of “Granny Tigg’s” Dressing.

Jacob and Sam grew up with their granny’s “magic orange sauce” and loved it and had always hinted to their parents to give it a go and get it out into the world. However they never found the time with their busy working schedules and so after Jacob finished Uni last Summer, they decided to give it a go.

This interview was broadcast on Radio Horton 10th July 2014.

The podcasts are now available.

Asking the questions is regular guest presenter and renowned people skills training / development trainer, and author Julie Cooper.

Show Host Ian Gentles.
