Welcome to Green Anchor! We are excited to tell you a little bit about us.
Green Anchor was formed by James Wallis, a chef with a vision for a sustainable future that looks at problems in the food chain and turns those problems creatively into delicious solutions. Green Anchors goal is to create a circular economy giving resources back to where they were taken from closing the loop.
What does that mean?
Essentially, we are taking overlooked food and produce that does not have a home due to consumer demands and would otherwise end up in landfill and making it into something you will love. Some of the proceeds from our sales are used to plant trees and help fight climate change.
We looked at the best way we could help fight climate change and decided that we couldn’t focus on individual parts but needed to look big picture to do this. So, we are focusing our energy on soil health. It all starts with good soil, good soil grows better crops, good soil stops erosion, healthy soil avoids nitrogen run off that creates dead patches in the sea, healthy soil with healthy trees act as carbon sinks absorbing the excess carbon polluting the atmosphere. So by planting trees we aim to improve soil health.
We are an independent small company and don’t proclaim to know everything or be the best, we are just trying to do the best we can you the environment whilst creating delicious food for you using the skills we have.
Green Anchor is intended to be a social enterprise, meaning the more you get involved and enjoy our products the better we can do together and the more we can grow.
At the moment we are making chutneys, jams and preserves you can enjoy, but intend to grow our range as we grow together. Our dream is to one day grow to be a café/restaurant where we can really utilize our expertise, we really believe that through enjoying food together we can make a difference and that these skills should be passed on to others so they can too spread the knowledge needed to create a more balanced and sustainable future.
We look forward to you joining us
