Emma is the Business Development Manager at Hodmedods, a small business based in East Anglia who produce and supply a range of British grown pulses and grains. She joined Hodmedods during her graduate scheme, having explored all areas of the food and fresh produce industry. Hodmedods has now been running for 6 years, initially established following a sustainable food project held in Norwich, as part of the Transition Network movement, with the overall ethos and aim to produce a truly sustainable, transparent, local food supply chain. Hodmedods are unique in what they do, in terms of the range of products, from forgotten crops such as the fava bean or Naked Barley, to the more alternative UK Quinoa, but also the overall array of crops they can offer exclusively from British Farms, with full traceability back to the farmers, who they work directly with to offer a complete supply chain.
Hodmedods are always trialing new crops to grow here in the UK as part of an overall aim to produce new, delicious British grown pulse and grain products, such as the most recently launched Smoked Quinoa.
