CUMBRIA’S Hawkshead Relish has shipped 40,000 jars of jam to Germany.

Hawkshead Relish has shipped the jars of its strawberry daiquiri jam after securing the sale during an overseas trade mission.

It will see a major German wine club supplier sending out an offer of the Lake District’s finest preserves to customers.


Hawkshead Relish exports around 10 per cent of its output.

Co-owner Marie Whitehead said: “We’re excited about future opportunities.”
