For the first time ever, all of our sweet and holy basil, and tilapia fish are sourced from an aquaponic farm in London! The guys at GrowUp Urban Farms are committed to feeding people in cities in a way that is positive for communities and the environment, today and in the future.
We stock Belu not just because it’s the most environmentally friendly bottled mineral water and the only water brand certified carbon neutral to PAS2060 standard, they also give all their profits to WaterAid – so far they have given over £1m. Sadly there are still 748 million people living without access to safe water, and drinking Belu is a really easy way to help out.
Championing global social projects with delicious soft drinks & iced teas. Every ChariTea purchased supports the non-profit organization Lemonaid & ChariTea e.V. So far more than 1.2 million euros have been raised for social projects in the growing regions of their ingredients. The ingredients are organic, vegan and are sourced from small-scale farming cooperatives in Sri Lanka, Paraguay, Mexico and South Africa. They are committed to Fairtrade: they pay higher prices for their raw ingredients and, vitally, they support a fair and humane agriculture. With help from the Fairtrade Bonuses, local farmers can improve their living conditions and initiate community projects.

They are a Living Wage employer, with an apprenticeship scheme for 18-24 year olds in Hackney, source the electricity for their brewhouse from 100% renewable sources, and are committed to reinvesting 5% of their profits in local charities and community projects.

We are proud to serve Monmouth Coffee at Rosa’s, roasting coffee from single farms, estates and cooperatives.

Building a relationship allows their coffee to be of consistent quality, quantity and price, which can be discussed in an open and equal way. A sustainable, fair and equal trade.
