We are Sun & Seed, the home of ethically sourced and produced nut, seed and fruit goodness. We harness the nutritional powerhouse of seeds, nuts and berries so you can do more with them - spread, mix, snack, drizzle, or blend. From nut and seed butters, oils and vinegars to sprouted seeds, oats and protein powders – our exciting range of organic, raw and vegan products has something for everyone.
Passionate about food
We are passionate about food and how it is produced. This is how we started our story back in 2004, on a small family farm where pumpkins and sunflowers were grown, knowing that organic, wholesome food is not from the past, but very much the future.
Sun & Seed was the first to bring chia seeds to the UK market and one of the very first in Europe. We had to sell it as parrot food until food regulators woke up to its amazing nutritional qualities and its long history of human consumption.
Today, we work with growers from all over the world and are always excited to bring new foods into our range. Our passion is in sourcing highest quality, organic ingredients from our trusted growers at a minimum impact on the environment. For this reason we always strive to use growers closer to home and the majority of the nuts and seeds in our product range are exclusively European-grown. We also like to keep our ingredients raw whenever possible, so all the organic goodness is brought to you intact and sometimes we even sprout things so that the nutrients keep on growing.
Once the ingredients reach the Sun & Seed foundry, we like to take things slowly. We use traditional artisan methods, our seeds and nuts are hand selected and stone ground and our oils cold pressed. Even when we need to enhance the flavour for some of our products by toasting methods, this is always done lightly, at temperature below 42°C. It’s a slow and careful process but we think it’s worth the effort!
We are proud to work with many established health food brands that trust us to source their raw ingredients and produce their own range of health foods.
Not just a production line
And we are especially proud of our partnership with the Camden Society, where we offer training and employment opportunities to people with learning disabilities. Our packaging and distribution centre is not just a production line; it carries real, every day opportunities to enable people with learning disabilities to gain new skills, confidence and ultimately play a more equal role in our society, helping make Sun & Seed a more inclusive employer.
So each jar, bottle or bag of Sun & Seed has a little story behind it!
