Lifesaving Championships

Two days ago we had an email from Joep Susken in Netherlands, he had an unusual request.  Could we send him some Dorset Flapjacks to a hotel in Wales?  It became clearer when he said that he is a Surf Lifesaver and that the The European Championships of Lifesaving  were about to take place at the Wales National Pool in Swansea and on Aberavon Beach.  We made his order for him and sent it off today.

The disciplines in the pool are mostly related to swimming and transporting the well known orange mannikin. In the sea they compete with paddle boards and surf skis.  Joep said “On such events Dorset Flapjacks are in their element.  Often we spent a whole day in the pool or at the beach with little time to eat properly. The Dorset Flapjacks are a tasteful source to get the high amount of energy to perform best.”

I  remember watching some Surf Lifesaving events in Australia and these guys really have to be fit and strong to be good at it.  Let’s hope that the Dorset Flapjacks give you the energy that you and your colleagues need to perform to your best. Good luck!



The Championships  will take place from 1st – 7th August 2015 in Swansea and Aberavon.  If you would like to find out more then go to


Challenge Weymouth

The Dorset Flapjack Company was at the Challenge Weymouth Expo from 12th September to 14th September 2014.  We had a really great time out in the sunshine and it was fantastic to meet so many Dorset Flapjack fans and to talk to so many dedicated athletes about their nutritional needs during such an event.  We can’t wait to do it all again next year when it will also be the European Championship and it will be even bigger and better!

This challenging endurance race took place on 14th September 2014, starting with a 3.8km open water sea swim in the clear blue waters of Weymouth Bay. The rolling 180km bike course weaves through stunning local countryside offering competitors a fast and smooth cycling event, taking in the beautiful surrounding terrain. The 42.2km run then leads through the town, which was bustling with support from family, friends and loved ones, making for a very spectator-friendly end to a gruelling ironman triathlon.

It was a great weekend for participants and spectators and brought a lot of life to the seaside town for the weekend.  Many thanks to Julie and Vickie from Studland Stampede for their great help.

Studland Stampede


This year’s Studland Stampede will take place on Sunday 11th October and The Dorset Flapjack Company are again providing Dorset Flapjacks for the Goody Bags.  The Studland Stampede has a great reputation for its Goody Bags and we hope that it has something to do with the Dorset Flapjacks!  Congratulations to Julie and Vickie for organising such a great event that just seems to get better every year!

Stop Press:  This year’s Stampede is now fully booked.  They will be releasing a small number of additional places in September so check out their website if you still want to be included.


The Perfect High Energy Sports Bar

From Cycling to endurance Triathlons, from arduous expeditions to Rowing, from Climbing to Golf, most sports and activities require determination, skill and energy.

While our Dorset Flapjacks won’t give you determination or the skill to be great at your sport they will give you the energy required to take part or compete at your highest. This is why we have also decided to sell boxes of our 120g flapjacks straight to the customer. So you can get stocked up on what is to undoubtedly become your favourite energy bar.

Most energy drinks and bars don’t taste all that great and are often designed to solely energise. However Dorset Flapjacks are not only a really great source of energy but are a great snack. They taste great, they look great and do the job better than most other products on the market. So how can you loose? Why not try them and see if you don’t agree.

Energy food doesn’t have to be boring, tasteless and unappealing.

With Dorset Flapjacks it won’t be.
