The name Grá Bia comes from the producers’ passion for food. ‘Grá’ means Love, ‘Bia’ means Food. It is all about sharing Passion & Love for Fine Foods.
Their chutneys are made the slow way which means layers of flavour. Combinations include Mango and Green Chilli and Plum and Cranberry. They come in regular and pocket sizes
Find them for sale at Indie Fude in Comber and at fairs and events like South Down Craft Collective at the Market House, Ballynahinch and Montalto Estate.
They are also very keen to work closely with local businesses and suppliers from Northern Ireland. Hales Fruit Sales in Newcastle supply most of the fresh fruits and vegetables that they are using in their recipes. The apple cider vinegar comes from Long Meadow Farm in County Armagh and the logo and branding has been created by Vizz Creative, also in Newcastle.
