Bringing real, nutritional and healthy food closer to people. "We are what we eat!" & "Food is the primary energy source on our planet!". These two simple principles drive our everyday job.
Together with passionate people that grow and ensure our future feeding the World. Sustainability and Biodiversity are our main drivers to select producers and products!
Choosing ethical, environmentally friendly and biodiverse food products is an important change humanity has to make to preserve the future of our planet and next generations.
Intensive agriculture and highly transformed products are having big negative impacts on our health and our planet too.
“Knowledge makes you free”(Socrates)Only those who know are capable of choosing! The broader the knowledge, the higher the quality of life of people.
Leveraging on existing technologies, integrating them in lean and independent systems to bring closer to humanity the "Real healthy food, fresh and traced", to answer to our customers questions: Where, How, Who, When, my food has been made?
We believe the real metrics to buy food should be £££/nutritionals, how much nutritionals do I get with £1 of a specific food? Nutritionals like Vitamins, Minerals, Protein, Antioxidants, etc. depend from the quality of the food. If the soils where fruits and veggies are grown is pour of nutritionals, our food will be only composed of water and low levels of pomp
