British expats craving anything from Marmite to a good ol' cup of Earl Grey, look no further. This new interactive map will allow you to look up your closest British shop, baker's or butcher's so that you only have to open up the fridge to feel like you're back in Blighty.

Expat financial advisor Which Offshore has come up with an innovative way of satisfying the gastronomical yearning some Brits get when they’re living abroad.

“We noticed there are loads of expats asking on forums where they can get British food products,” Which Offshore online editor Michael Brinksman told The Local.

“HP sauce, Branston Pickle, Monster Munch crisps, Curly Wurly chocolate bars; you name it.

“So a few of us got together and started compiling a list of British food stores around the world to make the expat search easier.”

The interactive map they’ve created separates the British grub selling points into three categories:

“The Marmite jar is for stores that sell British food products, the pig is for butchers and the pie is for bakeries,” Brincksman explained.

Thanks to the Google Maps interface users can zoom directly into the exact location of the store and also access contact details and a website if available.

“Spain and France seem to have the greatest number of British food shops, but we want users in other parts of the world like Scandinavia and Eastern Europe to let us know of any other stores as the aim is to continue updating it.”

The Which Offshore team also came across interesting findings during the research, like the abundance of British bakeries in South East Asia, where a fascination for English scones is reaching new levels.
