MORE FAQS GIVEN 

What packaging do the bulk goods originally come  in?

75% of the food comes in super strong 25kg paper sacks. We recycle or compost these when they are all used up. The remaining 25% come packed in plastic such as nuts, since nuts contain oils that do not do well when left for long periods in non-airtight containers. However, we keep the flexible plastic for our new recycling project Gomi and in the worse cases we recycle it with TerraCycle using their Zero Waste Boxes.

Where do you ship to?

All food items are shipped within the UK, and to Europe at a different shipping rate.

Non-food items are shipped worldwide.

 

When are food items shipped?
