Get in a Pickle with the English Provender Company


Proper Pickle-Range

Winners’ Update:

Congratulations to our challenge winner, Tales from Kitchen Shed, who created a Proper Fish Finger Sandwich with Provender Pickles 

We thought this was a great use of the pickle at home to recreate the fish, chips and pickled onion combo! 


This month, Foodies100 is teaming up with the English Provender Company to encourage our community to get into a proper pickle.

The brand new Proper Pickle range from The English Provender Company is a grown-up pickle that is perfect for proper sandwiches – sandwiches as they should be! Forget about sad supermarket sandwiches, these pickles are crunchy, packed full of flavour and deliver the perfect punch.

We’re challenging you to create a sandwich including one of the four Proper Pickles – Traditional Proper Pickle (Chunky); Traditional Proper Pickle (Finely Chopped); Pickled Onion Proper Pickle or Beetroot Proper Pickle.

The winner of the best “proper sandwich”, as judged by The English Provender Company, will win a fab prize of £500 in John Lewis Vouchers.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
