It is well known that British food is produced to the highest environmental and animal welfare standards in the world and by buying locally sourced British produce, businesses such as ours can help reduce the global carbon footprint which comes with buying imported goods.
That’s why we aim to use responsibly sourced, British ingredients wherever possible. Recently, we teamed up with Annabel’s Deliciously British to feature her home grown Strawberry conserve in our very own Show Stopper Cake. Annabel’s progressive approach to farming helps to provide a better future for British farmers, producers and consumers alike, whilst teaching the importance of sustainable, local food supply.
We even have a giveaway competition running in partnership with Annabel's. For your chance to win a 3 month Mon Dessert subscription (worth £60), an apron and two delicious jars of Annabel’s conserve, head to our Instagram post to enter. The competition closes at 17:30 on Friday 1st April.
Our suppliers are very important to us - they're what make our bakes possible. Our Salted Caramel Macarons and Salted Chocolate Tart use the finest of sea salts produced by Maldon Salt. Since 1882, they have been harvesting their world famous salt flakes from the shorelines of Maldon, England giving it its irregular and distinctive pyramid shape, as well as sweet, clean and delicate flavour.
We have also partnered with Plamil and utilise their Vegan Chocolat within many of our products. Plamil only purchase cocoa that is certified, meaning it has been grown to Rainforest Alliance standards which prohibit forced labour, child labour and other forms of modern day slavery in agricultural supply chains. Whilst the cocoa is grown internationally, the chocolate is manufactured here in the UK within their own specialist factory and to the highest environmental standards.
Finally, the key ingredient to any cake is flour. Shipton Mill provide us with the highest quality organic flour which is responsibly sourced. Not only is the grain ground at Shipton Mill unsurpassed in texture, the flavour has also built a well-earned reputation amongst bakers all over the country. Plus, we love the Biritsh heritage engrained within Shipton, as it has been producing flour in a beautiful Cotswold valley near Tetbury since the time of the Domesday Book. But don't worry, the flour we use is definitely not from 1339.
