Our Mission

Our ultimate aim

We exist to create a thriving food system that properly values food, the people involved in growing, distributing and eating it, and the ecosystems that produce it.

That’s right, we have ambitious goals, but with your help, we can build an alternative food system that benefits people, nature, and the planet!

We were founded in 2015 by The Kindling Trust, a Manchester-based not for profit with charitable aims. They’re on a mission to make our food system work for everyone, not just a few large corporations at the expense of farmers, local communities, the environment and public health. We work to connect people like you with truly fantastic fruit and veg produced by growers farming in an environmentally sustainable way.

Together we can build a food system where the benefits are shared equally and you can enjoy healthy veg that doesn’t cost the earth!

Why do we need a food revolution?

Our food system may look healthy, but beyond the supermarket warehouse door lies a wake of social and environmental destruction.
