Meet our local suppliers
An important part of True Food's ethos is to use local suppliers wherever possible. Here, three of our suppliers tell us about their produce and their relationship with True Food.
Nuts
One of the great things that True Food sells is a large array of unshelled loose nuts. The turnover is high so the nuts are fresh, and they offer excellent value for money. Not everyone can afford to buy everything organic, but nuts are one food where buying organic should be a priority.
SESI detergent refills are here!
We are very excited to be stocking SESI detergents in funky pump dispensers! Bring along your own bottles to refill. Find out about SESI and what we will stock.
Squashes
It is a bountiful time of year – but mostly when the squashes are in the shop! They just beckon the cook to produce thick soups, hearty vegetable casseroles or a new “mash”.
The ethical and environmental impact of Black Friday
Consumer waste and the environmental damage caused by plastics has made many people think twice about the repercussions of a consumerist culture, and retail events such as Black Friday that both encourage and thrive on it.
Food and mental health
Everything we eat determines our health – be it good or otherwise. It really is that simple. Mental health is a part of our health and the physical and psychological cannot be separated in this case. One affects the other. Find out what food affects your mood.
How volunteering can improve mental health
The 10th October is World Mental Health Day. With 1 in 4 adults likely to suffer depression we look at how volunteering can help mental health.
Dealing with a glut - and making the best of inexpensive seasonal food
Many of us grow some fruit and veg - whether it’s a few salad items on a windowsill or in a patio-tub or a more comprehensive array in our gardens/allotments. These sometimes give us a glut to deal with. Here's some guidance on what to do with your glut, and enjoy it all year round.
Why buy local, seasonal food?
September is a time of year in which, since the dawn of agriculture, harvest has been celebrated. Seasonal food scarcity is almost unheard of, as what we can't grow here in the UK, we just import. But there are so many benefits of buying local, seasonal food.
