Julie is our Business and Sales Manager. She is interested be more sustainable food supply. As a foodie, she understands food is essential to life and that it forms an important part of our cultural identity, and plays an important role in the economy. Through healthy living she promotes the awareness that the food they eat is an important factor affecting their health, but what is less well known is the impact producing and consuming food has on the world's resources. Alongside the cars we drive and the energy we use to heat our houses, the food we produce and consume has a significant impact on the environment through, for example, greenhouse gas emissions, the use of land and water resources, pollution, depletion of phosphorus, and the impact of chemical products such as herbicides and pesticides.
