Our Story

Our mission is to help you create a thoughtful gift, filled with love, luxury and the taste of the New Forest. 

If you’re looking for a unique gift to celebrate your family, friends, or colleagues, then you’ve come to the right place. 

The New Forest Hamper Company began with a vision of bringing the delicious tastes of the New Forest together, perfectly packaged and delivered to your door. We wanted to share all this picture-perfect part of England has to offer.

Within our vision we knew we wanted to champion deserving local producers whose quality shone through, to give them another avenue to sell their produce. 

We now work with over 50 carefully chosen suppliers to create award-winning hampers with over 150 unique local treats. We pride ourselves on hand-selecting only the finest local producers and beautifully packaging your selection with sustainable packaging. 

We want you to feel confident that your gift is going to look beautiful and taste spectacular, all while supporting independent businesses and the environment.

The team

The company founders Jason and Adie met climbing Kilimanjaro in 2009 - and they have overcome many mountains and challenges since! 

Jason is a qualified chef and having worked his way up to Head Chef level, started his own event catering company in 2010 specialising in the charity sector and working all over Europe with various charities and high profile clients including Richard Branson & family and England Rugby Captain Lawrence Dallaglio.  Adie has a corporate marketing and communications background, managing events across the U.K. and worldwide, before joining forces with Jason to manage their charity and private clients.  

The idea to start New Forest Hamper Company came in 2017. As Adie and Jason were already working with many local suppliers for the catering business, they came up with the idea as a way to further showcase all the amazing local produce, right on their New Forest doorstep.   

Now, with their two young children, when they're not enjoying family fun on the Forest, they seek out delicious food products and drinks to pack into the hampers and make sure the dedicated team are creating amazing experiences for their customers.

Our suppliers

We are based in the heart of the New Forest and have built excellent relationships with all our suppliers.  We work hard to find local people that create exceptional products and we admire their skills and passion.  They are our partners and we value their insights and experience - without them we wouldn't have our wonderful business...

Our 40+ suppliers include craft distilleries and breweries to farms and artisan food creators.

Many of our suppliers are award-winning producers of sweet treats, pampering indulgences, home luxuries and savoury delicacies, helping to create luxurious hampers with a unique local flavour.  

Because our customers create their own bespoke hampers using our Hamper Builder Tool, we feel that each and every single hamper we make tells its own story depending on the combination of products selected.  We love that individuality...
