Our International Food and Condiments buyer Haris Deane has been working hard to refresh our current condiments range. We’ve added over 120 new products for our customers to enjoy the broadest range of quality award-winning products sourced from our supplier’s specialist part of the world. From the juiciest Italian tomatoes, the finest Mediterranean olives, quality English mustard or America’s hottest chilli sauces, we’ve searched high and low to bring you the very best.
I’m so pleased to say that Booths customers will be among the first to try some of our new products from brands such as Olives Et Al, Hunter & Gather and Belazu. As well as offering more variety, the range also includes some healthier options including organic, vegan, sugar free and reduced salt and sugar lines so there is definitely something for everyone.
Olives Et Al
Back in 1992, newlyweds Giles and Annie Henschel embarked on a year-long expedition across the Mediterranean, Middle East and North Africa. Travelling on motorbikes, Giles and Annie couldn’t gather many souvenirs, but did gather delicious and traditional recipes, hoping to recreate the flavours of their adventure. Upon their return to England, they found themselves disappointed with the lack of good quality ingredients, in particular olives, prepared in the same way they had enjoyed on their travels.
Olives Et Al was born a mere few months later, starting with marinated olives using authentic methods inspired by the recipes from their adventure. Over time, the range has grown to include oils, speciality olives, sauces and so much more, while still maintaining the original and authentic tastes the couple fell in love with.
The olives from Olives Et Al are stored in olive oil, which once you’ve finished your olives, can be used for cooking or even as a salad dressing and will be infused with the flavour from the olives.
Available in store:
Olives Et Al Rosemary Olives (490g) £4
Olives Et Al Cumin Olives (490g) £4
Olives Et Al Fiery Jalapeño Olives (250g) £4
For 50 years Tracklements have been creating handmade, award-winning condiments that are made in an environment-friendly way. They started with the UK’s first wholegrain mustard to jazz up some sausages and the range has now expanded to include delicious savoury jams, jellies and marmalades to bring flavour to every dish.
The Tracklements ethos consists of creating sensationally tasty condiments in a planet friendly way by using 100% green electricity and 10,000sq feet solar panels covering the roof of their Wiltshire based factory. Their ingredients are also sourced from within the UK where possible to keep their carbon footprint low, including onions from Lincolnshire, apples from Kent and horseradish from East Anglia.
As well as a saucy addition to a sandwich or a roast dinner, the Tracklements range can also be used to boost the flavour of your favourite meals such as bangers and mash, spaghetti Bolognese or even coated with your favourite meats.
Sweet Mustard Ketchup – for a tangy taste, add this to Mac & Cheese or mix with mayo to create a zingy salad dressing.
Hot Chilli Sauce – use as a marinade for meat dishes, or to warm up your hearty spag bol or chilli con carne.
Spiced Honey Mustard – spread on thick-cut ham sandwiches, as a dip for your sausages or mix with olive oil for a delicious glaze on your favourite roast vegetables.

Belazu’s life began in 1991 by two school friends Adam and George, who noticed there was a lack of fresh authentic Mediterranean ingredients. Starting with fresh olives from Provence, the range evolved to include oils, vinegar, pastes and antipasti. As the range grew, so did the customer interest and Belazu began to stock their products in supermarkets and other retailers.
Belazu believe that everyone, regardless of cooking ability, should be able to cook flavoursome food every night of the week. Offering convenience without compromise, authentic ingredients with natural flavours straight from the Mediterranean, the products are made in small batches to ensure a perfect flavour every time.
Earlier this year, Belazu branched out to create a range of ketchups including Original, Smoked Chilli and Rose Harissa, after the popularity of their new pesto range. The high tomato content of the ketchups means less sugar is added to allow the full flavour to flow through.
Try adding a teaspoon here or there, the range of pastes and pestos are so versatile they can be used in any number of dishes!

The seeds of the Seggiano story started on the slopes of Monte Amiata in southern Tuscany when founders Peri Eagleton and David Harrison started farming olivastra seggianese olives in the early 1980s. Their first bottle of extra virgin olive oil was sold is 1994 and thus began their quest for traditional artisan foods, sourced from producers with the same passion for delicious and natural tastes.
Seggiano pride themselves on the provenance of their products. Made without preservatives, everything is freshly prepared in small batches using the freshest, seasonal ingredients.
The Oven Roasted Cherry Tomatoes are delicious straight out of the jar, on a piece of crusty bread or dipped in chocolate (yes really!)

Seggiano Cherry Roasted Tomatoes (220g) £6.50
The Garlic Farm
Based in the Isle of Wight, The Garlic Farm is run by the third generation garlic farmers after Granny Norah planted a small crop of garlic in the farmhouse kitchen. The garlic thrived due to the high sunlight hours on the Island (higher than anywhere else in the UK) and the decision was made to specialise in garlic.
The mission of The Garlic Farm is to celebrate the mighty bulb and bring joy through the delicious flavour it brings. All of the condiments, sauces and mayonnaises use the garlic to do what it does best and showcase the other flavours.
Use garlic at both the start and end of cooking! When introduced at the start, it mellows and almost sweetens the dish and when added at the end it delivers a beautiful aromatic lift.
