With over 50 dishes available in major supermarkets, our distinctive wooden trays and illustrated packaging make us instantly recognisable on-shelf. Charlie Bigham’s has achieved impressive year on year growth since launch and we continue to grow in a sustainable way. We now employ over 500 people across two thriving kitchens in London and Somerset. We have achieved B-Corp status because it’s the right thing to do for our business, for our consumers and for the planet. And our award-winning company is still expanding, which is why we’re searching for like-minded individuals who share our passion for the extraordinary, to help us deliver our food philosophy - Only Delicious Will Do.
