  6. Tony's Talk - The Origins of Chippy Curry

    Tony's Talk - The Origins of Chippy Curry


    In the 1960’s a Mr. Knight, Mr. Wood and Mr. Stern set up a little business in Orchard Street, Salford making pie fillings for local bakers. One seemingly innovative baker asked for a curry sauce filling saying he was going to make chicken curry pies. The Staff at Dinaclass made up a trial 100kg but the baker walked away saying he had decided not to go ahead!

    Left with this 100kg several local chippies were approached and told they could have it ‘at cost’. Two shops took the product and very quickly asked for more despite the fact that the price had to increase to cover production costs.

    With the acceptance of contactless payments for all transactions now changed to a new limit of £45, the advantages for your business are huge and incredibly beneficial for any business - regardless of your size.

  9. Tony's Talk - Problematic Prospects for Peas

    Tony's Talk - Problematic Prospects for Peas

    Whilst the glorious unremitting sunshine enjoyed during April and May helped us to endure the strictures of ‘lockdown’, it has impacted prospects for good crop harvests.

    The seemingly constant rainfall experienced during January, February and into March put paid to many Winter crops and delayed Spring plantings. In spite of the fact that February’s precipitation was the highest ever recorded, farmers had to wait until soil temperatures had warmed sufficiently to allow successful seed sowing. This delay caused the surface of the soil to dry out and seeds require moisture to germinate.
