I’ve started taking steps to becoming more conscious about what I buy and where from.
So I’ve teamed up with Macknade who have recently made some small changes to make shopping sustainably as easy as possible.
This weekend, I visited Macknade’s flagship store based in Faversham Kent to learn more about the small changes that have been made;
1. Buy Seasonal, Buy Loose – Shop for seasonal produce and limit food waste. Check out some of these recipes on the Macknade blog for in-season and leftover inspiration.
2. Sustainably sourced – choose pasture-fed British meat and sustainably caught fish from Macknade’s Faversham butchery.
3. Unpackaged – Use the dried goods dispensers in Faversham for your rice, pulses, nuts and muesli. This can reduce excess packaging, limit waste, and save money.
4. Yoghurt dispenser – For locally made, thick and creamy Ottie’s yoghurt, try out the only yoghurt dispenser in the country, available from the deli at Macknade’s Faversham Food Hall!
5. Refill – Bring your own containers from home. You can visit either store and choose cold cuts of meat, cheeses, olives & salads to be weighed and placed in your own containers on the deli counters. There is also a refill station in Faversham for your oils and vinegar.
Macknade have over 170 years in the heart of the UK food scene and has been in the same family for over six generations. They have two wonderful food hubs here in Kent, their flagship based in Faversham and a new dining & drinking experience in the heart of Ashford.
