Oaks Hampers is run by Lottie Dadd and was launched in October 2012.
I have been interested in the food industry since studying home economics at school. It was hard not to be inspired by our teacher who was rather aptly named ‘Miss Larder’!
I went on to study food marketing at university and then worked for various companies within the world of food before ending up with almost my dream job in the bakery department at Tesco. My love of cakes continues to this day and the Bonci Panbriacone that we stock from Seggiano at Christmas time is my all time favourite.
After working at a delicatessen in Brookmans Park near Potters Bar for a few years between having my two children, I decided to set up a business to sell hampers and delicious foodie goodies online and at events in and around Hertfordshire. Oaks Hampers was born. The range has quickly expanded and we now sell an array of gift bags, boxes and baskets containing carefully sourced food and drink from small, artisan producers that are perfect as presents or corporate gifts.
