The Great Fruit Adventure - Africa

The Great Fruit & Veg Adventure began its journey when Max and Gareth set off on two Triumph motorcycles from New Spitalfields Market in London in November 2016…. travelling some 18,000 kilometres, through 18 countries, meeting and greeting over 5,000 school children and experiencing first hand life on fresh produce farms throughout Africa.

2 men, 18 countries, 18,000 km, ONE Mission – meet, learn and educate about fresh produce.  London to Africa – DONE!

Shame about the plastic wrapping.

Ditch the plastic !!

Hmm..... just what is needed to warm us up and help boost our immune system... because quite frankly we need it right now! Too many coughs and sneezes around, not to mention flu... so make a batch of this quick and easy Carrot & Ginger Immune-Boosting Soup from @bbcgoodfood and eat yourself well 🤛

This serves 4, double to make a big batch 😋.
.
12 carrots, 4 tbsp grated ginger, 4 tsp turmeric, a few punches of cayenne paprika (plus extra to sprinkle over), 800ml vegetable stock, 4 tbsp sour cream.

Peel and chop carrots and boil until cooked through. Drain and put in blender with ginger, turmeric, cayenne, sour cream and veg stock. Blitz until smooth and then heat until piping hot. Swirl some extra sour cream through and sprinkle with cayenne.

Serve with a warmed sourdour and proper butter.

Great Fruit Adventure

An amazing initiative to excite kids, their schools and their families to BUY, ENJOY and CONSUME more fresh produce.

With ongoing childhood obesity and health issues globally, combined with more food businesses looking to sell high margin sugary drinks and snack products to an ever younger audience, we want to make a difference.
Did you know…
  • The cost of obesity to the NHS in the UK is £5 billion per year
  • Fruit & Veg consumption are critical to tackling type two diabetes
  • Obesity is the number 3 global social burden after smoking and war/terrorism
  • The UK consumes 240g of fruit and veg a day but the recommendation is 400g
  • Children consume up to 85% more fruit and veg when they have fun names or shapes

Did you see us at our great stand at “Food Matters Live” in ExCel and would like more information?!

Just fill out this short form and we will come straight back to you!
