Mullion Cove is the creation of one person’s passion for Cornwall and Food. Sophie Bowden was brought up in Cornwall and since leaving the county and living and working in London, she discovered that there was little representation of her favourite artisan Cornish producers outside of Cornwall.
So in 2009 she decided to start a business that endorsed Cornish producers and food traditions. She started trading from a market stall selling all kinds of different Cornish products from seasalt to salami but it was her own version of a Cornish fairing biscuit that was to become the best seller. Today the fairing biscuits have become so popular that she now concentrates solely on baking in order to sell on-line, on her market stall and to supply outlets within the South West.
Sophie Bowden is also the founder and organiser of the Ashton Court Producers Market and an endorser of Cornish food and drink and producers in Bristol.
In 2011 she was runner up in BizIdea awards, run by UWE and In 2010 she was awarded a fellowship from UWE as part of their S4R enterprise project.
