- We have an amazing partnership with an NGO called GUBA that trains local communities in permaculture practices and organic farming. We buy our fresh produce from the small-scale farmers who have been trained by GUBA. They get a fair price, and we get organic ingredients. That's what we can a #Hotdeal!
- We recently launched our range of chutneys! Made with locally sourced fruit, these condiments strike the perfect balance between sweet and spicy. Have you tried it yet?
