Top Tips From Abel & Cole
We believe that how you care for your skin extends beyond the products you use to the mindful practices you choose every day, including food. The food you choose to buy and eat not only has an impact on your wellbeing but that of the planet too. That's why we caught up with Francesca Heartfield from organic food box suppliers, Abel & Cole, to find out their top tips for making more organic and sustainable food choices.
Why is organic food important?
- Food as it should be. Free of artificial fertilisers, herbicides and GM feeds, organic farming grows food as nature intended. Crop rotation, hardy seed choices and the nurturing of natural pest controllers like birds and bugs means that fertility doesn’t need to come in a bag.
- Food you can trust. European law regulates all organic produce, but the Soil Association (a UK-based certification body of organic food) go leaps and bounds further. To be certified, all our farmers, makers and bakers are inspected at least once a year to ensure safety, quality and traceability.
- Food that doesn’t cost the Earth. Organic farming is farming for the future. The soil is one of our most valuable resources, and our farmers act as caretakers to their land. They encourage biodiversity, support their local wildlife and know sustainability is the only way forward.
- Food where the animals come first. The organic standard insists on the highest level of animal welfare anywhere in the world. Not only are the animals always happily free ranging, they don’t receive routine antibiotics, and they even enjoy an organic diet whenever possible.
- Unbeatable food. The Soil Association Organic Symbol is the mark of tip-top quality. It means every bite has been produced with passion, care and consideration. Real commitment is needed to go organic, and that always shines through in the taste.
