Ballot Street Spice; a new social enterprise based at Victoria Park Primary Academy which aims to make a difference and create opportunity for the community of Smethwick; has launched its new website.
By producing unique spice blends from local family recipes; Ballot Street Spice celebrates the cultural history of Smethwick; whilst providing learning and employment opportunities for the whole community. Their first product Mrs. Mahal’s Masala went on sale in September and the team have now created a website to capture the online sales market.
Nick Clitheroe, RIO Consultant who is working closely with the school says, “We have been busy with the launch of our first spice blend Mrs. Mahal’s Masala, and the feedback we have had from it has been great. We are now launching our website, so we are able to sell to more people outside to our community. We want to share the spice history of Smethwick with everyone and having an online presence is integral to that.”
