We are currently reviewing how to reduce the total impact of every ingredient we source. We're starting with the main ingredients namely cashews, macadamias, tofu and almonds. Having dug a little deeper we have seen that the nut industry is incredibly corrupt with little focus on sustainability or social issues.
A large proportion of the world's cashews are grown in E. Africa however their shelling takes place in Vietnam before they are sent back to E. Africa to be sold. That is simply madness and we're going to take matters into our own hands to fix it.
Through a grant from the Dutch government we're setting up a pilot with ReNature (an agroforestry foundation). We will either look to grow our own produce or work with local farmers and shellers on the ground.
