How Did It All Begin?
Did you know 1/3 of all food produced globally is wasted?
Since our humble beginnings in 2012, experimenting with family recipes and backpacks full of surplus fruit and veg, we’ve been finding ways to make delicious condiments from unlikely sources, as a way to be the champions of great food and sustainable living.
WHY DOES FOOD WASTE HAPPEN?
In the UK £650m of food is wasted before it leaves the farmers' gates!
In wealthier countries, high levels of food is discarded by consumers who have bought too much or by retailers because produce doesn’t meet aesthetic requirements. In developing countries, there are high levels of unintentional wastage often due to poor equipment, transportation, and infrastructure. If food waste were a country it would be the 3rd biggest carbon emitter after USA & China.
tons of food & drink are thrown away each year
If all wasted and surplus food in the UK was sold at market values it would have a value of £1.2 billion
The amount of food wasted is four times more than the quantity needed to feed all of the people around the world who are malnourished
To the Table
Our range of ketchups, mayos and relishes are made with fresh fruit and vegetables sourced directly from farms. We don't care if the ingredients are too big, too ripe or just plain pear-shaped. What matters to us is making the best tasting condiments in the best possible way.
Not Just a bit on the side
Packed with Purpose
The scale of food waste was the drive to start making condiments. By adding natural sugars & vinegars to excess produce the shelf life can be extended to up to 3 years! This keeps value in the supply chain for longer. How’s that for being savvy with leftovers?
The future of sustainable sauces
We now have an award-winning range of ketchups, mayo’s, and relishes. They’re all made sustainably from surplus ingredients that would have gone to waste.
We want our impact to be huge The scale of the problem is so big, that to have a real impact our condiments need to be in supermarkets, cafes, pubs, and delis all across the UK. Please spread the word, let us know which of your favourite joints should be serving our conscious condiments!
