Business partners Andrew Allen and Nick Coleman (BSc Combined Hons Public Policy & Management/Business Admin, 2004) became close friends during their final year at Aston University. Andrew was a former Vice President of the Students’ Guild between 2004 and 2005 while Nick was Vice President of Finance and Commercial Services. Since graduating, they have launched their first business together based on a passion they developed at Aston for pork crackling. They now make seven different flavours of crackling, and, instead of pork scratchings, they sell ‘Pig & Mix’. The business, The Giggling Pig, is expanding; they recently got their first listing with a large supermarket and are having a lot of fun creating their products, including the ‘Pig of Doom’ which combines crackling with one of the hottest chillis in the world.
