Ingredients & sourcing

OUR CORE PRINCIPLES

All of our products are fully traceable to source.

We source food that meets UK or equivalent standards of production and actively seek out food produced to higher environmental standards where possible.

The whey protein we use in our blend is always made from the milk of grass-fed and organic cows.

We only purchase free-range fresh eggs and free-range pasteurised egg products.

We prefer to work with suppliers that have direct-trade relationships with their producers to ensure higher environmental and social standards than required by certifications, such as Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance or similar.

The products we source do not knowingly contravene any of the ILO conventions regarding working age, hours, pay, conditions or safety.

HOW WE CHOOSE OUR SUPPLIERS

All suppliers that we work with have gone through a rigorous screening process, so we can be sure they comply with our sustainability standards. We demand complete transparency from our suppliers when it comes to their individual sourcing policies. We regularly review the suppliers we work with and work together to continuously make improvements, even if this means walking away from those who don’t meet our criteria.

HOW WE HANDLE FOOD WASTE

We’re committed to zero food waste. All stock is made-to-order. This allows us to only make the amount of product that we truly need. Any food that is left over, granted it’s edible, is donated to nearby charities. Or better yet, the kitchen next door makes granola from the apples and carrots we juice! The rest is composted or disposed of through anaerobic digestion.

HOW WE’RE WORKING TO REDUCE OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT

We stop at nothing to find the best quality ingredients that deliver optimal nutrition and taste. Naturally, this can sometimes mean sourcing ingredients from overseas which of course, negatively impacts our carbon footprint. We constantly assess and analyse this and are always on the lookout for more sustainable alternatives, whether that’s socially, environmentally or economically.

We have also partnered with DPD to support a courier service committed to making sure that every delivery is carbon neutral. 

OUR INGREDIENTS

Every ingredient in our products is all-natural with no compromise. Each ingredient is a real food product deeply grounded in nutritional science and is safe for long-term use.

We always try to live up to our most important promise of ‘honesty above all else’. You can read more about how we are trying to improve certain aspects of our supply chain and ingredients below.
