Traceable supply chain

We’ve worked with our friends at what3words to develop a fully traceable supply chain that shows you exactly where the fruit in your pouch was grown, who grew it and the journey it took to get to you, from farm to finger.

To begin, find the three-word address in the bottom left-hand corner on the back of one of our dried fruit pouches and enter it in the box below. Or, for an example, type in ‘sleep.foam.blinding’.

Then, click on each point along the journey to learn more, including to meet the farmer that grew the fruit used to create our dried fruit snacks!
