Questions regarding the products

Are the products local?2020-04-05T12:00:25+01:00

Some are locally produced, others are not. Our focus is to fight food waste. 99% of the products we source are organic.

I found mould on a product, what should I do?2020-04-05T12:00:25+01:00

If the mould part is small, you can simply remove it and eat the rest. If it’s really too bad, you can compost it, or throw it away if composting is not an option. We carefully prepare the baskets on Thursday morning but it can happen that some mould is overlooked. If you pick up your basket on Thursday and store the fruit and vegetables properly, they should be as fine as market products.

Can I get sick from eating a mouldy fruit?2020-04-05T12:00:24+01:00

No, you won’t get sick. It tastes very bad but you don’t need to visit to the ER.
