Two Sixth Form pupils are sweetening up life in lock down through the development of their own fudge business, The Sweet Kitchen.
Created by L6 pupils Olivia Holdcroft and Scarlett Udy, The Sweet Kitchen business was set up as part of our Young Chamber programme and produces luxury yet affordable fudge for the Norwich community.
The inspiration behind the project came from their parents’ creative backgrounds and a love of all things sweet. The duo have completed a food hygiene course and trialled a number of recipes to get the perfect product. They also used social media to promote the business to the community.
In response to the latest outbreak and to keep spirits lifted, they are taking The Sweet Kitchen out of school and into the community by making local deliveries.
At Norwich School we have approximately 80 pupils that have been engaged in our Young Chamber Enterprise schemes this year, where they form their own companies from scratch. "This year the 'Sweet Kitchen' has been very successful in terms of sales. We are delighted that Olivia and Scarlett have taken the initiative to adapt their business model so it can continue to operate safely and successfully as a delivery service.” said Mr Manton.
