NEW SPEAKER: HODMEDOD - SOWING THE SEEDS FOR BETTER FARMING + FOOD

 

Hodmedod was founded in 2012 by Nick Saltmarsh, Josiah Meldrum and William Hudson after they realised the absurdity of the British relationship with pulses: most of the UK’s beans are exported to the Middle East and Northern Africa, while most of the pulses consumed within the UK are imported from abroad. They decided to do something about this, and started working with local producers of fava beans, a bean which has been grown in Britain since the Iron Age but little eaten here in recent centuries. After successfully bringing British-grown Fava beans to the market, with a highly favourable response from individuals, retailers and caterers, they started to explore other British varieties of beans and peas, as well as cereals and other grains, such as naked barley and quinoa.

Hodmedod works with a network of farmers to source and sell both organic and conventionally farmed peas, beans and British quinoa online and through independent retailers and farm shops. We are excited to welcome Hodmedod co-founders, Josiah Meldrum and Nick Saltmarsh to The Good Life Experience to speak about 'Sowing the Seeds for Better Farming and Food.'.
