New owner for Pea Green Boat
Shortbread House of Edinburgh has taken over specialist cheese sablé baker The Pea Green Boat for an undisclosed sum.
The Pea Green Boat was set up in 2011 by Maddy Corbin – daughter of Thursday Cottage founders Pam and Hugh Corbin. She was joined in 2013 by Sally Champion, and the pair will work with Shorthead House on a consultancy basis in the short term.
The Pea Green Boat was a three-star Great Taste winner in 2015 with its original recipe sablés and ranked in the scheme’s Top 50 Foods. Shortbread House has itself won 62 Great Taste awards.
Corbin said they decided to sell for personal reasons and because they needed a company with the resources to grow it further.
