OUR INGREDIENTS

Using only plant-based ingredients has a significant impact on reducing the Co2 emissions generated from more conventional dairy-based products.

 

The ingredients we use are not the cheapest, they come from certified sources, many being organic and are all completely traceable.

 

Our entire range is better for the environment, does not use any animal products and doesn't cost the earth. In short, everyone wins.


OUR PACKAGING

Like many food producers, we found packaging to be a challenging area at first. The tendency for far too long has been to use plastic trays and plastic wraps, simply for their affordability. This is not acceptable and is an attitude that must change rapidly.

 

Our solution to minimise plastic packaging and our impact on the environment is to offer our range in larger sizes, so you can order less often and keep your bakes frozen - minimising; packaging, cost, shipping and food waste.

After an extensive search, we found a bespoke, food grade wrap that is 100% compostable and 100% biodegradable.

 

This wrap is completely plant based and far better for the environment than a typical BPA-free plastic wrap which ends up in landfill and adds to the problem.

We love our cardboard boxes, they transport well, store well and are 100% compostable.

Our Carbon Footprint

We have worked hard to reduce our carbon footprint at every opportunity and will continue to implement positive change in our processes to benefit the environment.

Our entire product range is plant based which is more sustainable and better for the planet, however that is not enough for us.

Our modern production facility combined with efficient production equipment has a low environmental impact. Our locally sourced and UK manufactured packaging and choosing to work with a carbon neutral courier company ensures all aspects of what we do has a minimal impact on our planet.
