• Going Ape for Monkeys

    Everyone at our head office in Midhurst is on about monkeys at the moment. Something about this year being the Year of the Monkey in China. Personally, I much prefer the idea of Rabbits, and would be quite happy if every year was the Year of the Rabbit. Or the mole. Or the pheasant. Or the Industrial Estate Cat. Monkeys live in trees, which is not helpful if you are equipped with 4 paws. Apparent ...

  • MOTHER’S DAY: NOT QUITE AS SIMPLE AS IT LOOKS

    Most of us mistakenly think that Mother’s Day is the same thing as Mothering Sunday. The latter is a religious festival where, traditionally, people went back to their ‘mother church’ (the one they were baptised in) to celebrate motherhood, whereas Mother's Day springs from a long campaign waged from 1905 by Anna Jarvis in West Virginia, USA, to recognise the debt we all owe to our mothers. ...

  • Pupdate : Fantastic Mr Fox

                      Everyone round here has gone crackers for animals, and I don't get it. The first I heard of it was when I came in a couple of weeks ago and heard a couple of them talking about 'Mr Fox'. I assumed that this was someone new who was about to start work with us, and wondered idly if he had a good taste in biscuits. Then it ...

  • Pupdate : When Boris met Spike

    Everyone round here has gone crackers for animals, and I don't get it. The first I heard of it was when I came in a couple of weeks ago and heard a couple of them talking about 'Mr Fox'. I assumed that this was someone new who was about to start work with us, and wondered idly if he had a good taste in biscuits. Then it turned out that Mr Fox was an animal, and that we were printing thousands ...

  • A Dog with a Blog

    Whatever you may have been told about Dexam, I like to think that I help run things round here. I am Boris, chief taster and assistant floor cleaner. I am about 6 years old, and I still live with my mother which is OK…..most of the time. I am part Jack Russell, part Fox Terrier and part something else. A vicar’s out-of-control dog got involved in my ancestry at some stage, but I am always b ...

  • Get something right the first time and it will probably outlive us all

    A few years ago, we were honoured to receive an industry 'Icon' award for our spiked Carving Dish, a product that is now well into its 6th decade of life and remains unchanged since the day we began making it. The story is worth telling. The brothers who set up Dexam had a long association with a local landowner. Two of them had been flatmates while studying accountancy in London. As farming be ...

  • How does a great product actually come about?

    Some people just buy a product, use it, and never think about it again. It is sufficient to them to know that it actually works. But the rest of us – let’s call us ‘industrial romantics’ - ache to know how a great product sees the light of day, and this blog is for them. Take our Classic British Biscuit Cutters, for example. The idea was born 4 years ago on a half-completed Chinese ...
