The company, based at The Sunrise Plant Company in Saundby, started selling ethically sourced food and products towards the end of last year, but soon found they needed to expand when they found customers couldn’t get enough.

Among the products they sell are green beans from Kenya which they say helps support the local community in the East African country.
