It’s All About Food That Is F-R-E-S-H:
(Fresh, Real, Easy, Seasonal and Healthy)

Let me let you in on a secret. I’m a great cook, but I’m not a ‘great cook’, know what I mean? I am not formally trained in the technical sense, but I do know how to make great tasting food. Because for me, great tasting food is all about food that is FRESH – fresh, real, easy, seasonal and healthy. When you’ve got FRESH right, cooking great food is a snap!

This is why I am so in love with our fresh peas and beans. Fresh shelled legumes (legumes are a class of vegetable that includes beans, peas and lentils), like our green peas and our borlotti’s, are amazing fresh. Seriously, if you’ve only ever eaten frozen peas or canned/dried borlotti beans, the taste of a fresh pea or a fresh borlotti will simply amaze you. They just have so much flavour and so much more of a robust texture when fresh. Once you've tried it for yourself, you will see what I mean.

Our Edible Gems range of fresh, shelled peas and beans embody what it means to be fresh, real, easy, seasonal and healthy.

Our peas and beans are not dried, nor are they cooked, steamed or parboiled before being put in their packs. They have no additives (unless you count sunshine and rain!). They are grown fresh, then shelled and brought to our new, state-of-the-art packhouse for washing, sorting and packing. Once packed, a breathable film is put over the top to keep them fresh, then they are packed into cartons and shipped to our retail partner stores.

We capture their natural freshness and natural deliciousness straight out of the pod and deliver that freshness to you. We love our fresh peas and beans…and we know you will too.

"If you do what you love and work with people you love, the things that you produce will be loved."
