We can never have too many ideas so if you have any that you feel that fall in line with our values, feel free to get in contact!
It’s the foundational principles on which we base our creations. We believe in a Real Food Lifestyle that supports Optimal Health with products that do not contain sugars, grains or inflammatory oils. There simply is no room for them!
We believe in eating plenty of real, non-processed foods such vegetables, nuts & seeds, healthy fats, grass-fed, lifelong pastured meats and wild caught fish.
Check out our Blog pages for more information and or our tasty recipe pages.
We believe that the vast majority of people can benefit from a gluten-free lifestyle or as we call it, a ’Real Food Lifestyle’.
Gluten is a very common allergen with extreme issues caused for those with Coeliac disease and Gluten sensitivity like our Co-Founder Amy. We therefore ensure that all of our products are suitable for those with Wheat and Gluten Intolerances as well as Coeliacs.
The farmers that we use for our Extra Virgin Avocado Oil follow Organic principles such as:
No pesticide use
No artificial fertilisers (they use cow manure)
No added chemicals
We have had the oil laboratory tested for any traces of pesticides, for which there was none.
Avocados are also number 1 for foods on the clean 15 list for lack of pesticide contamination. Therefore we do not feel it is necessary to state “Organic” on our bottles as this is an additional cost to the farmers to gain “Organic” status when by default they are pesticide free.
You will be super please to hear that you are able to have both the Classic Avocado Oil Mayonnaise as it is made with simply 4 ingredients and our Chipotle Chilli and Lime. We do not use any garlic or onion in these recipes and the other simple ingredients are also suitable for a FODMAP Lifestlye.
Sadly, the garlic mayo is out but honestly with the other two to tuck into, we sure you will be pleased :)

Caring for the Environment & People
We want to do business for good and this includes the environment and the people that live in it. We limit our use of plastics, use glass containers, pay a fair price for our ingredients and our suppliers invest in education for farmers and their families.
We love the world and really care about the impact we have as a business on both the planet and it's people.
We not only want you to be the best version of yourself but as a business we also want to tread as lightly as possible on the environment.
How do we do this:
We only use glass jars and bottles with paper labels – we hate plastic! We pack all of our customer orders in cardboard boxes and packing paper.
We purchase oil made from avocados that would be wasted from export trade. They may be too small, too large, weird shaped or have slight sunburn (all which does not affect the oil from the flesh). We love that we can use something that would go to waste.
Our oil is pressed in country, so that as little room as possible is required for transport. We then bottle the oil in the UK and this helps reduce carbon emissions rather than transporting glass bottles.
Our Extra Virgin Avocado Oil Supplier, who we work closely with, employ local people in Kenya and buy from small scale farmers. An Agronomist is hired specifically to provide free education to these farmers to help them care for their trees for future generations. They are shown how to use Organic principles such as fertiliser from the families cow and how to avoid mono-crops, by planting Bananas, coffee and avocados together.
Join us on our mission of being the best version of yourself, for the Planet and it's People.
This is a great question – our farmers are amazingly important to us.
Our Extra Virgin Avocado Oil is made from hand picked and hand sorted Kenyan Hass avocados that are grown by local farmers in Kenya. Our Kenyan supplier ensures that the local farmers are well looked after.
Co Founders Amy & Jeff went to visit the farmers in 2018 and are very to happy to report back:
We pay a fair price for the avocados and ensure the welfare of the farmers is top notch
Our supplier uses small local farmers (with as little as 5-10 avocado trees) as well as a handful of larger farms
The avocados are predominantly grown for export to supermarket; however supermarkets will only purchase fruit that meets certain criteria (size, shape and colour for example). Previously fruit that did not fit this criteria would be wasted and many farmers relied solely on the export trade. We purchase fruit that would have been wasted (even though there is nothing wrong with the flesh) which we use to make oil. This gives the farmers extra income and avoids food waste; it also ensures that the farmers are not 100% reliant on export
Our Kenyan supplier hires agronomists (that’s someone that knows a lot about farming and plants) whose job is to solely look after the farmers and visits them regularly. They provide training to ensure that the farmers can look after their trees for the future and ensure sustainability
Saplings are supplied to the farmers free of charge, so that they can grow trees for future generations
