If you haven’t heard of local sisters Laura & Jess and their ever-so-popular grazing platter business, Sharp + Co, I could assume you’ve been hiding under a rock; but I’ll forgive you. The girls are known for their gourmet grazing tables and platters that they supply to Newcastle, Port Stephens and the Hunter Valley. Taking a short hiatus from business due to COVID-19, the girls are back and better than ever.

With losing 80% of their business within the first week of COVID-19 restrictions, as well as their usual suppliers no longer delivering to them with the small quantities they required, Jess and Laura were finding themselves visiting our local shops on the daily.

With two little girls in tow; Sophie aged four and Evie aged two, the pair decided it was in the best interest of their family, their clients and the community to temporarily shut up shop.

With restrictions only recently being eased, and the little ones being able to return to their daycare it was time for Jess and Laura to get back to business.
