supply of fruit & vegetables and actively shaping the future of food for
the better. We have spent over ten years connecting capital cities with flavors
that would otherwise be lost forever. Delivering truly seasonal produce to over
500 restaurants in London, New York and Paris, we count amongst our customers
some of the world’s finest chefs. We also actively seek to reeducate the way
people think about and consume fruit & vegetables. Our goal is to create a
more meaningful and responsible food system that preserves seed varieties,
growing techniques and traditions that are threatened by modern industrial
farming and supermarket culture.
