OVER the years Kate Tullberg has seen her husband Guy lead family condiment firm Tracklements to huge success but now their three children are grown it is her turn to have the taste of success.

Mrs Tullberg, 54, and her business partner Tim Buckley, 55 launched Seaspoon selling seaweed products in July and have already won the BBC Good Food Show producers bursary and will be appearing at the BBC Good Food Show Winter.

The pair who run their business in Seend, near Devizes, wanted to make seaweed which has been shown to have great health and wellbeing benefits into an easy to use ingredient.

Mrs Tullberg said: "It is a magnificent wonderfood that both Tim and I wanted to incorporate into our family routines but struggled to see how."

They carried out a lot of research and the result was Seaspoon which is dried and flaked seaweed sold in pouches ready to be added to smoothies and other recipes.

Mrs Tullberg's sister Sarah Sandys-Renton, who runs the firm's marketing, said: "Within just weeks of the launch, Seaspoon has been mentioned in the Delicious Magazine Podcast, will shortly launch a partnership with national supplier and the hat-trick is to have now won a BBC Good Food Show Producers Bursary Award which champions the very best in new food producers."

Mrs Tullberg from Sherston, near Malmesbury and Mr Buckley a fitness fan, who lives near Devizes, have been friends since childhood. Mrs Tullberg's husband Guy is managing director of Tracklements which makes mustards, piccalilli and relish at Easton Grey, near Malmesbury.

Over the past 40 years, Tracklements has become one of the leading purveyors of artisan British sauces in the country –more recently making its mark across the Atlantic - with a more than 150 Great Taste and Taste of the West Awards to its name.

But when Guy’s father William started cooking up small batches of condiments in his kitchen, all he intended to do was liven up family meals.

Now Mrs Tullberg is following the same route.

Seaspoon made it through a stringent annual tasting session with the BBC Good Food Magazine editorial team in September, to be announced as one of just six bursary winners from across the UK.

As part of the Award, Seaspoon will have a stand in the Producers’ Village at the BBC Good Food Show Winter, taking place at Birmingham’s NEC from November 29 November to December 2.

Katy Truss of Fabulous Food Finds, coordinator of the awards, said: “The tasting panel for the BBC Good Food Show Producers Bursary Awards were really impressed by Seaspoon Seaweed; a really exciting new product that offers such an easy and accessible way to add nutrition to everyday cooking and adds great flavour too.

"Visitors to the BBC Good Food Shows are always looking for new artisan producers and we’re seeing growing interest in vegan, gluten free products and food with nutritional benefits as well as great taste; Seaspoon ticked all these boxes. Seaweed is an ingredient that I'm sure we will see entering the mainstream due to its sustainable nature, and nutrient dense makeup and it'll make fantastic addition to the BBC Good Food Shows.”
