Burley-based New Forest Shortbread launches snack packs in all eight flavours





NEW Forest Shortbread has launched snack packs for biscuit lovers on the go.

The handy minis are available in all eight flavours, and can be bought online or in local coffee shops.

Owner Tracy Thew, based in Burley, said the move was an “exciting opportunity for local food and beverage outlets and accommodation providers”.

She continued: “The snack packs, like the boxes of shortbread, are branded with Forest-themed illustrations – so for instance what visitors may see during a walk through the New Forest National Park.

“This is a perfect way to share knowledge and beauty of this special place, as well as giving customers the opportunity to experience the difference that is New Forest Shortbread before going on to buy a box.”

Tracy won the sweet biscuit category with her traditional bake, which judges described as the “perfect shortbread biscuit”.

The panel stated: “If you are looking for the perfect shortbread biscuit that are just the right size for your mid-morning cuppa, make sure that New Forest are your first point of call.
