At Real Food Gifts the careful selection of the brands we support shows the people we’re gifting that we’ve really taken some time to think about our gifts.
Palm oil is so ubiquitous in our groceries that we often don’t even know it’s there! Baked goods are particularly sneaky with palm oil masquerading as harmless sounding ingredients like “vegetable oil”.
RFG is palm oil free because of the devastating impact the deforestation required by palm oil farming has on the environment, endangers species and by the ongoing human rights violations committed by palm oil production companies.
Brands you’ll find in this hamper:
Our pastured egg supplier – Lucky Cluckers in Jindivick – pride themselves on being REALLY free range. They work hard to ensure that they have the happiest hens around, with a stocking density of 200 hens per hectare – in contrast, there are still eggs in stores right now labelled as “free range” with 10,000 hens per hectare. By law, these eggs can be classified as “free range”, despite the hens having only one metre squared each to move, and with no mandate for the hens to actually spend time outdoors. When put into perspective like this, pastured eggs seem like common sense.
Dench Artisan Bakery
Dench Bakery commits to quality ingredients, and a palm oil free range. The biscuits selected for this gift hamper are just perfect with a hot cuppa.
“Dench Bakers have been baking natural, artisan-style bread since 2005, when we started supplying the hospitality industry and public from our shop located in Fitzroy North. From our bakehouse in Abbotsford, we now supply many cafes, restaurants and independent grocers with quality handmade organic sourdough, specialty breads, pastries and cakes.”
