WHO ARE WE?
S’cargo Ltd is owned by Helen and Rachel Howard, artisan food producers and gift wholesalers based in Britain.
S’cargo Ltd is their second business enterprise building on the success of their Kentish snail farm H&RH Escargots. The company aims to create high quality products, source ingredients locally where possible, behave ethically and practice sustainability.
The initial thought behind the creation of S’cargo Ltd in August 2014 was to create a collection of unique gifts designed to promote snail farming and a greater understanding of the value of edible snails in the UK.
Passionate about farming that enhances the countryside, the company was determined only to use snails reared through methods in harmony with nature.
Winning a BBC Good Food Show Bursary Award enabled the launch of the Mini Snail Farms for children and Grow Your Own Escargots packs at the November show at the NEC. Plans are afoot to launch more unique products over the coming months.
Visitors to the Farm Shop and Deli Show 2015 flocked to see live snails on the show stand and voted for these unique gifts to reach the final three in the Great New Idea Awards. In March 2015 Café Rouge appointed Helen Howard as the UK’s first Snail Sommelier to assist them in promoting their new menu and in particular their Ragout d’escargots.
The company provides wholesale supplies throughout the UK, through farm shops and delis, visitor attractions and garden centres and is proud to support British snail farmers.
