A Taste of the Caribbean in the UK
Island Delight patties were born thanks to its founder missing his favourite snack from home. Wade Lyn, the founder of Cleone Foods and Island Delight inventor, moved to the UK from Jamaica and felt obliged to bring the authentic flavours of the Caribbean to his new home.
“Growing up in the Caribbean patties were a staple for all of the family. We would eat patties as a snack at lunch time or as a main meal in the evening. When I came over to the UK as a teenager I was surprised to find how difficult it was to buy a pattie, and a bag of chips just wasn’t the same. Later on I decided I wanted to help bring the vibrant Caribbean tastes and flavours I grew up with to the British market.”
