Started in Oxfordshire by a team of passionate farmers and foodies, The Wonky Food Company makes great tasting products that also tackle the problem of food waste. From ugly onions to leftover limes, they pack as much imperfect and surplus fruit and veg into their products as possible, understanding that no matter what size, shape or colour, it’s the taste that counts.

The business was launched in 2018 by brother and sister team John and Ashley Cavers. They were soon joined by friend and catering expert, Laura Snook, who helped create their launch range of tasty relishes, which have all been designed to be used as everyday ingredients. Working closely with a network of farming partners, the team are also developing a number of other product ranges, responding to the food that is commonly wasted.

“40 per cent of all the fruit and veg we grow in the UK never even makes it to the shop shelf,” explains Ashley. “Sometimes this is because they are the ‘wrong’ shape and size for supermarkets, and sometimes it is due to weather damage or surplus crops – but the majority of this produce is still perfectly edible.”

The products are vegan, gluten-free and made from 100% natural ingredients. With BBQ season upon us, make sure you stock up on their tasty relishes, and visit their website www.wonkyfoodco.com/kitchen for some recipe inspiration!
