Seasonarians is incorporated as a Community Interest Company, which means that any profits we make have to be re-invested in to the business. Our mission is to encourage people to eat as locally, seasonally and sustainably as possible.
We want to create a way of eating that relies less on importation and more on what you can source from your own country. We support eating meat and dairy products whilst striving to support local producers, encourage self-sufficiency and protect the environment.
What do we stand for?
While sourcing your food seasonally and locally is talked about a great deal, nobody to date has put a name or a framework around this way of eating. Our website will give you the opportunity to achieve just that.
Every year, we produce a carbon footprint of approximately 8 tonnes of Co2 emissions per capita in the UK. Food production and delivery to our plates accounts for some 15% of this, so by eating seasonally and locally we can reduce this significantly.
What are our aims?
- To promote and support local producers within the UK.
- To promote local meat and dairy products.
- To highlight where your fresh fruit and vegetables are sourced.
- To show you how to eat seasonally, locally and sustainably.
- To help you reduce your carbon footprint.
Meet the Seasonarian founders
Having studied agriculture I have spent the last 30 years of my career involved in The Dairy Industry. As a result, I am passionate about British Agriculture and the high standards of welfare that we have here. Whilst I understand that there is a place for Veganism and Vegetarianism I also think that there is a third way……. as a Seasonarian. I hope that you find our website informative and that it changes the way that you think about our food.
Hello! I am a 22 year old Psychology graduate who has always had a keen passion for the environment. Since the age of 10 when I would make ‘save the whales’ posters and put bins around my neighbourhood, I have been concerned about the destructive effect human activity has on our environment and wildlife. The food industry is currently one of the largest contributors of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. I strongly believe that we can change this, and one great way to do so is by becoming a Seasonarian. If we work together to create a more sustainable lifestyle we will be collectively saving our planet. After all, who doesn’t want to be a lifesaver!
Having lived on a small holding for the last 30 years where we produce our own lamb as well as keeping chickens and growing as much of our vegetables as possible, it was a very easy choice for me to become a Seasonarian.
I hope that you enjoy the website and that it will help you to make informed choices when you are shopping in future.
