Doughnut firm Project D will be hoping to impress MPs with their creations when they take part in a food and drink event inside Parliament today.

The Derby firm will showcase its doughnuts at the Derbyshire Food and Drinks Fair, which will take place in the Jubilee Room.

The firm was invited by local MPs Amanda Solloway and Pauline Latham and the event is expected to be attended by members of the House of Commons and Lords, as well as parliamentary staff.

The event is designed to raise awareness of the county’s food and drink producers among key decision-makers and to highlight the importance of buying local produce.

The firm, which has its bakery in Spondon, has previously won orders for its handcrafted bespoke doughnuts from a host of companies including Amazon, British Airways, Coca-Cola and Sainsburys.

Operations manager Max Poynton said: “One of the most exciting things about Project D is never knowing what each day will bring – there’s always something new and innovative happening.

“In the early days of our business we were asked to provide doughnuts for staff and residents at Windsor Castle and now we’re off to Parliament. We really hope to see Boris sampling one of our doughnuts!

“On a more serious note, we are very proud to have been asked.

“We are proud of our Derbyshire links, and it will be an absolute pleasure to represent the county in London.”

Derby North MP Amanda Solloway said: “The Parliamentarian food and drinks fair will be held in the historic setting of the Palace of Westminster and provides Derbyshire with an excellent opportunity to showcase our talents to some very different consumers.

“Project D is an absolutely brilliant example of what can be achieved with creative thinking, hard work and a passion for their products.

“Like other Derbyshire MPs I am very proud of our local producers and hope showing it off in Parliament will help our companies flourish.”
