We work hard to make sure the products we stock are ethically sourced and socially responsible. We work with independent, small scale, local producers that use traditional methods and the best seasonal ingredients. Around half the food we sell is now produced in-house, which reduces waste, packaging and transport.
Our fruit and vegetable offering always echoes what’s in season and we will never buy produce from abroad that’s available from UK growers
Almost all of our packaging is fully biodegradable. This includes all our coffee packaging and carrier bags. The remainder is commercially compostable. We are also part of a reusable drinks cup scheme by Reuser
All our food waste goes to composte and the majority of our remaining refuse is recycled.
Our electricity is 100% renewable and our van is fully electric.
We're passionate about animal welfare and only stock free range fresh meats for retail and as ingredients in our sandwiches. The sausage meat in our scotch eggs and sausage rolls is free range, as is the ham, bacon and chicken in our sandwiches.
We are a keen supporter of local charities, donating around 5% of our profits each year. This includes a weekly contribution to the Arc foodbank in Islington as well as regular donations of raffle prizes to schools and charities in the community.
