The discovery of the remains of King Richard III in Leicester has inspired the launch of a royal range of premium food products with more than a hint of history.

Greyfriars Fine Foods has created a selection of handmade contemporary foods by using historical flavours and ingredients.

The drizzles, dressings, chutneys, relish and marmalades have been influenced by Medieval recipes and have been developed to mark the unprecedented discovery of King Richard III’s bones by our archaeologists at the Grey Friars car park in 2012.

Rosie Clark, who is behind the range of products, has been working with the Support to Growth project at the University, which engages and encourages links and sharing of skills with local business.
