In keeping with our philosophy at Alfalfa of stocking sustainable produce, we are so excited to have sourced a fantastic new chutney and pickle brand which ticks all the boxes!
Not only is the “Eat Me” brand produced locally and is Fairtrade Certified, but it also uses organic ingredients. However, for us the most exciting aspect of the brand is that it uses surplus produce. All that surplus that would have gone to waste is rescued from our local farmers and lovingly transformed into delicious chutneys and pickles.
The mum (a self-professed chutney queen) and son (French trained chef) team based in Sydney outline their story below.
Our socially good jars come in three varieties:
* Rescued produce - made from ‘surplus’ produce that would have gone to waste and now has been rescued from our local farmers
* Fairtrade chutneys - first and only ones across AU/NZ
* Organic chutneys - using the best produce the farmers have to offer and to celebrate life a little
With such criminal levels of perfectly edible food thrown away, we are super dedicated to converting as much of this produce into chutneys as possible whilst creating an awareness around food wastage. Be it squishy/wonky/bruised/funky or simply unsold, we rescue it and convert them into chutneys amongst other things we do. Doing something about food wastage is very important to us!
Quick note on Organic chutneys
Although our produce is organic, the vinegar is not and hence no Organic Certification. Most organic vinegars come from France/Italy whereas our supplier is merely 200 kms from us, so we rather support our local producers.
