“As a mother of two managing a challenging work/life balance, I am increasingly frustrated by the lack of quality and transparency on those occasions when I have had to rely on supermarket, bought-in prepared food for my family.
This combined with my personal concerns about sustainability, the environment, plastic packaging and the wish to give my children the best start in life, has led my partner and I to take a leap of faith and start our own organic food delivery business”.
Lindsey Rhodes – Co-Founder
'It’s good to see that organic products continue to be ever more relevant to more people. They are making ethical choices on food and drink and other aspects of daily life such as waste, packaging and energy'.
Helen Browning – Group CEO, Soil Association Report 2019
