Hello! You have been redirected from the Great British Beans website.
Following the successful Great British Beans trial, we established Hodmedod to source and supply British fava beans and other pulses.
Hodmedod sources produce from British farms to supply the best ingredients. We’re particularly interested in searching out less well-known foods, like the fava bean, which we still grow and export but haven’t eaten in Britain for centuries.
We currently sell a range of British pulses – split fava beans, whole fava beans, Kabuki marrowfat peas – in kitchen packs and bulk catering sacks. 12.5kg catering sacks of large blue peas, yellow peas, split green peas and split yellow peas will be available soon. And the black badgers are coming… (They’re maple, or carlin, peas.)
Our products are now available to order from our online shop and will soon be available in selected discerning outlets – watch this space for news! We can also supply wholesale customers – please contact us for more information or to set up an account.
Hodmedod Ltd is a new business, founded by Nick Saltmarsh, Josiah Meldrum and William Hudson in 2012 and based on the Norfolk-Suffolk border. We share a belief in good, sustainable and local food, and have worked together on sustainable and local food projects over many years through our partnership Provenance and for the regional NGO East Anglia Food Link.
The Great British Beans trial project
We founded Hodmedod following the successful Great British Beans trial project to stimulate and assess demand for indigenous pulses. This project was run by Provenance for East Anglia Food Link as part of its Norwich Resilient Food Project, which was developed with Transition Norwich.
