Our Culture

 

As a progressive food company, we recognise the importance for our business to operate in a meaningful and sustainable way- addressing both social and environmental considerations. We aim to always operate sustainably and this mission is an integral and fundamental part everything we do- from our sourcing of all natural ingredients to the training and welfare of our staff.

 

 

Ingredients

 

It was through careful sourcing and thoughtful provenance that we first created our marshmallow recipe. These values are still adhered to at every level of our production.

 

Our fruit is sourced from a Soil Association and Fairtrade Foundation provider.

Our sugar is British Fair Trade Sugar 

All the herbs used in our marshmallows are from a Soil Association supplier and are certified Organic.

We never use colourings or flavourings in our marshmallows.

Our marshmallows are crafted using premium Fish gelatine ensuring they are pescatarian as well as Kosher and Halal friendly- we are the only marshmallow company in the UK to do this.

Our marshmallows are gluten and dairy free.

Our chocolate is handmade in the UK with beans sustainably sourced from the International Cocoa Initiative in West Africa. Our chocolate supplier also invests in specific projects for the cocoa farmers. We only ever use chocolate that is Palm Oil free.

 

 

 

Environmental

 

We promote a sense of responsibility for the environment in everything we do from production, retail and all our event sites.

 

All our packaging is produced in the UK by a company who specialise in sustainable packaging. We only ever print using environmentally sound materials and methods.

 

We only ever use FSC certified cardboard and paper products within our packaging and serving materials. The paper and card is made from using wood that comes from FSC certified forests, or from recycled materials.

 

Our toasting sticks are made from non-treated bamboo which means that, even though disposable, they are easily re-cycled and aren’t toxic when broken down.

 

Our aim is to divert as much waste as possible away from landfill, and into recycling facilities instead. All of the waste from our production kitchen is processed by B&M waste management- a carbon neutral company that work to reduce the negative environmental impacts of waste.

 

All of our unsold or unused food produce goes directly to the Real Junk Food Project- an organisation that uses food that would otherwise have been discarded to produce meals and food boxes that are sold on a "pay as you feel" basis to the local community.

 

 

 

Prosperity

 

People are at the core of what we do. Our Marshmallowists are part of a nurturing and positive working culture.

 

We are committed to being a living wage employer and pay the living wage to staff at all of our event sites.

 

All of our event site managers and supervisors are trained to at least a Level 2 Food Hygiene certificate and every team member receives a full site induction, product, brand, operational and food safety training by a member of senior management.

We know that we are part of the face of the event and, as such, ensure that all our team members are fully prepared for any customer enquiry.

 

As a female run business, we actively promote the progression and up skilling of women at every level of our operations. Every year we give a charitable donation of our sales to a different women’s charity.
