Three cheers for a British supplier which provides an essential ingredients for several of our tastiest products.

Suffolk-based Hodmedod supply pea flour, which adds protein and a delicious flavour to tour Fava Bean & Poppy Seed, Green Pea & Chia Seed and Red Lentil & Poppy Seed crackers.

The company gathers various beans and pulses from farmers throughout East Anglia and mills them into flour before sending them onwards to our factory in the Somerset countryside.

What’s a hodmedod? It’s a local word for something round or curled up, so it can mean a snail, a hedgehog - or beans and peas. Hodmedod says: “We chose the word for the name of our business simply because we like the sound of it, and feel that it reflects our East Anglian backgrounds and represents part of our forgotten heritage.”

We’re so pleased with our links to this great company.
