From Family Recipe to Award-Winning Delights: How Calder’s Kitchen Navigated Labelling Success with Springfield Solutions

Calders Kitchen

We work with Calder’s Kitchen to provide a flexible, speedy digital label service for their range of piccalilli and chutney products.

About the Brand

Calder’s Kitchen was formed in 2015 after discovering a hidden, legendary family recipe.

The founders originally had no plans to start the business, but after uncovering Andrew’s Grandad’s recipe and making the piccalilli out of nostalgia, they soon realised they had stumbled on something excellent! Following further encouragement after selling it at farmers market, the team decided to give it a go and the brand was born!

The brand now produces a range of three Piccalillis and four chutneys. With a combination of traditional and spicy flavours based on ‘Grandad Charlie’s’ original piccalilli recipe, which dates back approximately to the 1960s.

Calder’s Kitchen have won several awards including Great Taste awards for four of their products, the Condiment World Cup in 2022, and most recently, a Farmshop & Deli Gold Award for their Chillililli!

Working with Springfield Solutions

The team at Calder’s Kitchen were recommended to use Springfield Solutions as a reliable label supplier by their contract manufacturer and began working with us in 2023.

One of the main draws for Calder’s Kitchen to choose Springfield for their label supplier was our fast lead times. Due to the digital nature of our label printing, we have a maximum lead time of 5 working days from artwork approval.

This enables Calder’s Kitchen to not only receive their labels quickly, but also to make changes to their labels quickly utilising our Studio team.

“Springfield have been very helpful on making the occasional tweak to our packaging to add an award badge or a small change we’ve needed to make. This has saved us quite a lot of time, not having to go back to the original artwork creators. Overall, the labels look great, and I know our manufacturer at the factory are very happy about the way the labels arrive on site too!” said Andrew Calder, Owner of Calder’s Kitchen.

I really appreciate how easy Springfield are to work with. If we ever have a bit of an emergency and need to get some labels quickly, they do everything they can to help. Customer service is very important to us, and we have been very impressed. I also love the recently added portal where we can log in, upload new labels, and place an order. It’s slick, easy and puts ownership on us to make sure we’ve got the order right!”

Calder’s Kitchen use our Web4Labels platform to upload and approve their artworks as well as order their labels! This enables the brand to have unprecedented access to the full label approval and ordering process so that they can tailor orders to their budget and needs.

“When it comes to customer service, we receive calls from the team to make sure everything is ok and that we are happy. I have always got the impression that Springfield are very customer focussed – and that’s important.

We are still reasonably new in our customer journey with Springfield, but we have already recommended them to others. I just like the fact that Springfield offers flexibility, their team try to make things easy for customers and are great to deal with.  We are very happy that we chose Springfield as our supplier!” said Andrew Calder, Owner of Calder’s Kitchen.
