We love the county we live in, and want to do all we can to support Devon and its food and drink producers. It’s very important to us that our food miles are kept to a minimum, so sourcing our ingredients from local farmers and supplying our products to other local businesses does just that.

To show our support and give something back to the local area, we support Paignton based charity CentrePeace. We offer them cakes at cost price. They also take bags of our surplus off-cuts and which they distribute to their volunteers and also pack and sell in their cafe.
We have also teamed up with Homeless in Teignmouth (HITS) Foodbank who collect our offcuts. Before being put on sale all our traybakes are trimmed to keep them uniform. The offcuts will be broken down into smaller bags and added to the HITS’ food packs which will be given to people in crisis in the Teignbridge area.
It’s a win win situation all round, we reduce food waste, less gets sent to landfill and people in need get themselves a treat. We would hope that other local food businesses would think about products that they could donate before taking the easy option and throwing it out.
