Coopers Gourmet Sausage Rolls
Ivan & Jordan Cooper
After 20 years as owner of Gillhams Deli in Oswestry, former Shropshire chef Ivan Watkiss founded Coopers in 2009.
A real foodie, Ivan’s entire family is involved in catering; ‘I’m from a line of cooks, and caterers,’ says Ivan, ‘My maternal grand-parents lived the good life on a small farm, where they reared animals and grew veg.
I helped them from seven years of age, and that’s what started my passion for great local produce.’
Coopers Gourmet Sausage Rolls is now based in Roden, Shropshire, producing a range of products using only the best possible ingredients. "Our philosophy is simple.
We aim to source our ingredients primarily from 30 miles of Shrewsbury, secondly from Shropshire producers and then from other quality suppliers within the UK wherever possible."
