Charcuterie boards have become popular online in the last couple of years.

A trend that Lauren Turner from Bawtry has taken advantage of and decided to set up her own businesses named Little Lane Deli Co.

Lauren, 26, said: “The idea came to me from when I was travelling around Australia and New Zealand where charcuterie boards are quite popular.

The business was set up around three months ago and Lauren is already looking to expand due to popularity.

The charcuterie boards are filled with cheeses, chutneys, meats, fruits and crackers.

All of which is sourced locally as Lauren is passionate about supporting small businesses and reducing her environmental impact.

Lauren is planning a new festive box that she hopes will bring some sparkle to people this Winter.

The boxes that the boards come in are compostable and Lauren hopes to increase the eco-friendly elements to Little Lane Deli Co over time.

For Christmas she will be launching a signature box which will include festive treats such as cranberries, turkey, christmas pudding and seasonal cheeses.

“I’ve seen an increase in people ordering the boards as gifts for loved ones they can’t see in lockdown,” she continued.

The boards come with cheeses, fruits and meats.

“Hopefully they will be able to add a bit of something special even if they aren't able to go to the usual parties.”

Lauren prepares the boxes following Covid-19 guidelines and as close to the delivery slot as possible to ensure freshness of items such as fruit.

In the future she hopes that she will be able to sell her charcuterie boards at events such as weddings and parties.

Lauren has the ability to attach gift cards to her product where customers can request a special message be written out if it’s going to be a gift.
