Our Ingredient Bases

Let's talk about almonds

All our lovely almonds are grown in the sunny Mediterranean, mostly fed by rainwater. And when the sky doesn’t provide quite enough, our farmers use drip irrigation, a way that makes every last drop count. Once they’re ripened by the sun, we harvest them, and maybe just lightly toast them to bring out the nutty flavour before turning them into our delicious almond based foods, ice creams, desserts and drinks.

Almond based
  • We know almonds can be thirsty . So when we found out in Spain and Italy they are mostly watered by rain, we decided to source them only from these countries.

    We’re also working with a few farmers to protect biodiversity: using plants, ponds and hedges between their trees to invite wildlife back onto the land. We can’t wait to see who turns up!

    Oh, and let’s not forget about the bees. After all, they help feed the world, be(e)ing the most important pollinator of food crops. We are collaborating with our suppliers and external experts to identify and promote pollinator-friendly products and production systems and apply this to all our almonds by 2025.
