Pipp & Co

Each week, Swindon-based Pipp & Co bakes around 20,000 doughnuts. They’re all made from natural ingredients, with no additives or preservatives. The new chai and cinnamon variety will be available at the farmers’ markets Pipp & Co visit and from its online store.

At the end of National Doughnut Week, which runs from 18th to 26th May, Pipp & Co will make a donation to the charity backed by the event, The Children’s Trust. The charity supports children with brain injury.

‘We reached out to Henny & Joe’s because we love the chai products they make. And we wanted to create a special doughnut for National Doughnut Week,’ said Betina Evangelista, who runs Pipp & Co with husband, Mario.

‘They have the same ethos as we do, producing a quality product using only natural ingredients. We thought a chai flavoured, filled doughnut would be a great addition to our range.’

Lottie Heynen runs Henny & Joe’s with partner Ash Bailey, and the company takes it’s name from the couple’s two sons. They started producing chai concentrate when Ash – who was working in a café – realised the quantity of additives and sugar used in regular, powdered chai. With the fast-growing popularity of chai latte, Henny & Joe’s products, that use only natural ingredients and are caffeine-free, are now available in independent coffee shops and retailers. And also via Amazon.

Lottie said: ‘We work with independent companies who have the same sort of ethos as ours, and Pipp & Co ticked all the boxes. The doughnuts they have created are super tasty and the chai goes so well with the cinnamon bun.’

Pipp & Co doughnuts and other products are available through stockists from Reading to Oxford, and from Stroud to Bristol. For more information visit https://www.pipp.co/.
