The Mayor of Hertsmere opened a new shop run by two award-winning entrepreneurs.

Karen Pomerance and Louise Caplin opened Spice Way online in 2010 after being inspired by the sights and smells of a spice market in Israel.

Their first shop in Battlers Green Farm, in Common Lane, Radlett, has now been opened in a ceremony attended by the Mayor Paul Morris and Mayoress of Hertsmere.

The shop offers a range of products from more than 70 varieties of spice blends to gourmet rice mixes and fruit infusions.

Since launching the company, Karen, of Shenley, and Radlett resident Louise have won five awards in the Great Taste Competition, including a 3* award in 2013 for their Fr’cinni Fruit Infusion drinks range.
