What they do:
Ros Heathcote was amazed by how difficult it was to find a UK distributor of quality slow-cooked stock that had no added sugar, preservatives or MSG, so in 2015 took on the challenge and set-up Borough Broth Co. Borough Broth Co is committed to reducing waste and to changing Britain’s eating habits. All the bones used to make their stock are sourced from high-welfare, 100 per cent grass-fed beef reared on local, organic, Soil Association-certified farms. Their packaging is made from sustainable, 100 per cent recyclable materials and, to save energy, they transport their chilled broth from their Broth Kitchen in the West Country using Woolcool – a sustainable, recyclable, food-friendly insulation made from natural lambswool. From bone to broth, the whole process takes 24 hours, but Borough Broth Co encourage others to take the time to make their own stock at home by making the recipes they use available online.
What the judges said:
The judges loved the story behind Borough Broth Co, admiring the traceability of sources and Borough Broth Co’s commitment to “lowering the environmental impact” of their business.
