  • Ruby Violet – Tufnell Park

    Email:

    We are based on the borders of Tufnell Park and Kentish Town, a little jewel in the heart of Fortess Road, from where we serve our delicious ice cream and sorbet. We take time to create our flavours, for example the toasted coconut is made by cracking then peeling the coconuts, grating, toasting then soaking in the milk and cream for 2 days, straining then churning. All the dairy ice cream is made in small batches, using seasonal fruit prepared daily on the premises. In the summer the mint, rhubarb, apples and honey are all sourced from within a few miles. Blackberries and damsons come from Julie’s home village of Flintham in Nottinghamshire. Julie decided right at the beginning to only use organic milk, free range eggs, British or fair trade sugar. We use no artificial preservatives and all our tubs are biodegradable and compostable, and we recycle our spoons. The ice creams all contain egg yolk. The sorbets contain no dairy. All the sorbets and ice creams may contain traces of nuts, as we use the same equipment and although it is cleaned thoroughly between each batch we cannot guarantee a completely nut free product. We’re always open to suggestions for new flavours and are very willing to experiment, so please contact us with any ideas. Ruby Violet also offers catering for special events and weddings and runs ice cream and so

  • Karma Cola UK

    Email:

    We believe what you drink should not only taste good, it should be good for the land, good for the people who grow the ingredients and as good for you as a fizzy drink can be. A few years ago we had a crazy idea that sent us on a search for cola, the name ingredient in the world’s most popular fizzy drinks. We wanted to connect cola drinkers with growers in a way that respected everyone and everything in between. It took us all the way to a small village called Boma in West Africa where cola nut is traditionally harvested and Karma Cola was born. Now, two years on, every time you buy a bottle, part of the proceeds go back to Boma in Sierra Leone to help rebuild in the aftermath of war. Karma Cola has already helped to build a bridge, a rice processing plant and send 45 young girls and boys to school.

  • Hodmedod’s

    Email:

    Hodmedod works with British farmers to offer a range of pulses and grains, with a commitment to providing quality food that’s as sustainably produced as possible. All our pulses and grains are British-grown – and always will be! Our first product was the fava bean, grown in Britain since the Iron Age but little eaten in recent centuries. They’re delicious, nutritious and good for the soil and bees. Split fava beans are especially versatile and easy to cook as they don’t need soaking. More recently we’ve been searching out and developing production of other less well-known foods, like black badger peas and quinoa. We offer our products as dried ingredients for cooking as well as in more accessible cans and as roasted ready-to-eat snacks.
