Retailers Can Increase Sales - While Helping Food Banks

The Help Food Banks Programme

The Help Food Banks Programme is being operated by The Ethically Sourced Network. The Ethically Sourced Network (ESN), is a platform that connects suppliers and buyers of ethically sourced products.

Major Retailers will be provided Access to the information and products of Suppliers, to help to support FareShare, the UK's largest hunger fighting charity. When ESN Suppliers supply these Retailers, a donation will be made by those suppliers as a percentage of transactions, to FareShare. Participating Suppliers have supplied their Product information by using This Form.

Retailers can Benefit From Track And Trace Under the IBM Food Trust Programme And Help Food Banks At The Same Time

The Ethically Sourced Network (ESN) is part of IBM Food Trust. Retailers joining the Help Food Bank Programme, can reap the benefits of IBM Food Trust and Help Food Banks At the same Time. When ESN Suppliers supply Retailers Under the Help Food Banks Programme, a donation will be made by those suppliers as a percentage of transactions, to FareShare.

IBM Food Trust is Built on the IBM Blockchain. It connects participants through a permissioned, immutable and shared record of food provenance, transaction data, processing details, and more.

Utilization of A Local Web Programme by Participating To Support Food Banks

Over 130 web sites for Towns and Cities across the UK are participating in the Local Web programme. How this works is that Featured National Retailers are supplied by participating Suppliers Under the Programme. When those Suppliers supply featured Retailers on the Local Site, a donation will be made as a percentage of transactions, to FareShare.

Sites in the Local Web Network dedicated to the support of FareShare in this Manner include London.WS and Cardiff.website

Benefits To Retailers of Products with The Ethically Sourced Mark

Being able to easily establish that a product is Ethically Sourced is becoming increasingly important in today's world. The ESN Ethically Sourced certification mark in the UK is a collective Mark, that is carried by certified members of the Ethically Sourced Network.

The Utilization of the ETHICALLY SOURCED mark in a national network of Town and City Websites, will help the mark to get recognition as a national brand for Ethically Sourced Products. As the Mark is used only on products certified to be Ethically Sourced, it's use in promotional materials should encourage people to buy Ethically Sourced products from Participating Retailers and help them increase sales

HONEY


Black Bee Honey

Founders Paul and Chris met in an office 20 years ago, but their interest in beekeeping led them to London rooftops where they cared for millions of bees. Whilst they still have hives in London, they now also support several other British beekeepers whilst showcasing the best honey the UK has to offer. Their seasonal varieties demonstrate how the taste, texture, and colour of honey changes dramatically due to the flowering plants surrounding the hives at that time of year.

Whilst the company has grown and evolved, the founding principles still prevail; that their honeys remain unpasteurised and unblended, course filtered, and that each jar be stamped with the individual apiary location and beekeeper to ensure maximum traceability.

    ORGANIC GRAPE SUGAR

  • The most natural of sugars, rescued back from Ancient Mediterranean traditions.

  • A liquid sweetener uniquely made with heritage organic grapes grown by small Sicilian farmers.

    Our artisan sugar is simple and unprocessed. This allows us to keep its nutrients and vitamins, lowering its glycaemic load. Yes, you can have it all!

    Swicily is a real food, not an additive. It is highly digestible, rich in nutrients and lower in calories. It contains vitamins, antioxidants and carbohydrates with quality calories that become energy.

    Swicily does not sweeten like other products, but better. The high sweetening power of our blend neutralises the food’s bitter tones whilst maintaining perfectly balanced tastes on cold, hot, or baked food, without ever covering them.

    Changing habits has never been so sweet!
