Australia is home to an innovative social enterprise that tackles food system injustices with chutneys and pickles. Eat Me Chutney, a social initiative started by a mum and a son team, fights food waste and unfair trade terms for farmers in developing nations. They make socially good jars of chutneys by hand, in small batches, using wonky and wounded produce local growers are otherwise unable to sell. Their website explains their concept quite clearly: “Be it squishy/wonky/bruised/funky or simply unsold, we rescue it and convert them into chutneys. Tackling food wastage is central to what we do!”
A great initiative in Sydney, could it be replicated in the UK?
