Is my fruit locally sourced?
Yes, we always strive to source our fruit locally. All our fruit is bought on a daily basis from New Covent Garden Market early hours in the morning. When our buyer gets there at 11 PM he goes around all the firms to check all the fruits available. Our buyer makes a note of where all the best fruits are and go back to the firms to start tasting and to sort fruits from the UK/Europe where possible.
What do you do for Charity?
We’re actively donating to The Waterloo Action Centre, Born wild, NSPCC and wild futures.
