ENTERPRISING teenagers had to use the gift of the gab to make money as part of a business challenge.
Students from Clevedon School and Backwell School took part in The Fruit Machine project which saw them make money by selling smoothies and fruit pots.
The pupils had an early start when they visited Bristol Wholesale Fruit Centre to buy ingredients needed to make into products they could sell, negotiating to get the best price possible from the traders.
The following day they set up stalls on Bristol’s College Green, on the same day as Bristol’s Biggest Bike Ride, and were then tasked with creating their products and selling them to the public.
They had until 3pm to sell their produce, some of which was created using special smoothie bikes to power a blender, and were judged by a panel of experts from the food industry.
