Taste Our Products In-store

At Barker’s we have a great team of supermarket demonstrators who are avid fans of our products and have a wealth of knowledge at their fingertips.


Be sure to call by and sample a free tasting. There’s always something new to try – whether it be fruit syrups, jams, relishes, savoury and dessert sauces, dressings, fruit pastes or our new antipasto range.  

PLEASE NOTE: We’ve provided a tasting reference to guide you as to what we’re likely to be sampling that particular day. Please note, from time to time, due to unforeseen circumstances, these products may change at short notice.
