it all started with a seed...
Piccolo ingredients are planted and nurtured in independent family farms from across the Mediterranean from countries like Spain and Italy, with a few of our more tropical fruits and spices sourced from far flung corners of the world. At Piccolo, independent family farms are at the heart of our sourcing decisions. We know our farmers and their stories, and have been lucky to have sourcing ethics very much part of our founder’s and her family’s background in food. It is an integral part of our Piccolo journey. We work closely with our farmers so that they grow for Piccolo bursting with flavour type produce to put in our recipes. It’s at the core of our promise to make sure we are getting the best possible ingredients for our range.
The Mediterranean region is full of incredible, high quality ingredients, and Cat and the team have travelled across the Alps, from the apple orchards in Campania, Italy, to picking harvesting zucchini in Provenance, France, meeting the families and friends involved in the growing of the ingredients that end up in Piccolo’s recipes.
