Hello everyone. I hope you are all well and enjoying this beautiful weather we have been having. Summer really is in full swing.
My favourite thing about summer in Scotland is the fresh local berries. We are in love with the strawberries, raspberries and blackberries we have been getting from local farms such as Balhungie Farm and Arbuckles Farm. They really cannot be beaten!
I am so excited to share with you the news that we have been nominated for the Food Hero Scotland awards. These awards are for leading sustainable food businesses in Scotland. Please click here to vote for us!
Food Hero Scot aims to find and celebrate sustainable food hero’s and help to share positivity and sustainability throughout Scotland.
We are a more than profit social business, which mean we want to make changes that will do good in the world and inspire our customers to do the same. We also want to give back to our local community and support great local causes.
In our second year we managed to raise £2000 which was distributed in various ways to local charities, community groups and those in need in our community. We also donate 100% of our surplus food to different community groups and charities.
None of our waste goes to landfill. Everything is either donated, repurposed, reused, recycled or converted to energy.
We won 2 awards this year including the Scotland’s Towns Scotland Loves Local – Local Hero Award and the West End Community Council Covid Hero Award. Both were for our contribution to our community throughout the covid pandemic.
I always say the shop isn’t here to make millions it’s here to make a difference and I think I can say with pride that we have done just that!
The winners of the Food Hero Scot awards will have a documentary made about their business. The aim is to spread awareness of sustainability and inspire others
