Whenever possible. We try to minimise our carbon footprint and always try to put our local fruit and veg at the forefront of everything we do. At certain times of the year (especially in winter and early spring), there’s limited availability/variety of produce in the UK, so we rescue produce from abroad to provide you with an interesting and healthy selection in your boxes and help out growers in other countries.
This is why we are able to supply you with the occasional mango, pineapple and avocado. However, we only rescue produce that either has already been imported and has then been rejected, or can be imported along with the ‘perfect’ part of the harvest, enabling farmers to get a return on their full crop.
