Meet the Producers -
B&M Catering

For any newcomers, who are you and what do you do?

We are B&M Catering (Bev & Michael)! We make cakes, bonnag, pies and ready meals.

When did you establish your business?

We’ve been trading for approximately 15 years, with a break of about 6 years in the middle.

What inspired you to begin?

I started with the Isle of Man Farmers Market at weekends, selling cakes and traditional Manx bonnag.

How has your business grown since then?

I have been working full time now since 2020, I do local markets, agricultural shows etc.

The business is also making savoury pies and ready meals, something which really took off during the first lockdown, when I baked ready meals, and Michael delivered them - it was so busy! We also supply Andreas and Sulby shops now, as well as lots of private orders, and even some private functions. We have never looked back!

Where are you based and what does that community mean to you?

There is just the two of us still, and we work from home in Andreas, which can be quite testing when very busy.

What does the Isle of Man Food & Drink Festival mean to you?

The chance to meet other producers, and our customers!

Which other local producer(s) are you most looking forward to seeing this year?

We can’t wait to see everyone!

What’s on the horizon for your business?

We have no plans at present to expand the business, we are quite happy the way we are.

What is your signature dish/product?

I bake a lot of Manx bonnag for the bigger events and they are the first things to sell out - it is a traditional recipe and I use the flour from Laxey Mill and buttermilk from IOM Creameries, delicious.
