Two Years of British Beans, Peas & Quinoa

Two Years of British Beans, Peas & Quinoa

by Josiah Meldrum December 31, 2014 2 Comments

Back in 2012 when we founded Hodmedod it was nigh on impossible to reliably find British-grown pulses in the shops – and the range was tiny.

Two years on and we’ve got 16 varieties of dried British peas and beans (plus 6 types of snack, 3 kinds in cans and, of course, our Essex quinoa).

It’s been a real pleasure working with everyone who has helped us to achieve this – farmers, retailers and everyone who has bought our peas and beans and convinced us that we’re not completely crazy to be doing this!

Thank you.

(And there’s lots more to come in 2015 – we can’t wait.)

Hi Sue. It’s the process, not the beans – at present our Roasted Fava Beans are produced on a line that also roasts peanuts so there is a risk of cross-contamination, which is why we have a warning about peanuts, nuts and sesame on our packs and website. Best wishes, Nick, Hodmedod

Can peanut allergic people eat roasted kava beans?? or is it in the process that causes cross contamination with peanuts.
Can you clarify is it the beans or the process. Thank you.
Sue

What are fava beans? Aren't they just broad beans?

Fava beans are very close to our hearts at Hodmedod, which we founded in 2012 with the simple aim of getting British-grown fava beans back into British kitchens. Still we're frequently asked, "What are fava beans?", "Aren't they just broad beans?"

Naked oats are a disruptive technology
Naked oats are a disruptive technology

Whole naked oats make such a good alternative to brown rice. In fact, they’re better. Creamy and nutty, they work brilliantly in salads or in place of rice with stews, curries and more. But Naked oats are not just delicious - naked oats are a disruptive technology. (Take that tech start-ups!)
