WEDGEWOOD HANDMADE HONEY NOUGAT was started by our Mum, Gilly Walters, in the family kitchen in 1999. Gilly and Taffy had to sell the family farm due to illness and so to make ends meet they hosted music concerts at home. It was at one of these evenings that Gilly first made her nougat and was inspired by happy guests to start selling it at the local farmers markets.
The business grew by word of mouth and soon production spilled out from the family kitchen in to the double garage. Shortly Gilly’s three sons and daughters-in-law joined the business and in 2006, we moved in to our state of the art factory in the KZN Midlands.
