Great news!Silver Spoon sugar is all produced from sugar beet grown in East Anglia. You can read the details of my correspondence with them in Correspondence with Silver Spoon in the 'Link' list to the right.
Fuck me, you lot want to get a life!!

Hello guys, a German bookseller of my acquaintance told me about your challenge. Just had a look - really interesting. Sounds like you are having a lot of fun with this, East Anglian sugar beets - who would have thought it?Apologies if you have covered this, but have you looked into organic food delivery? Able & Cole offer a good weekly delivery. I have no idea if they would meet your challenge criteria.Regards,Rab in Edinburgh
Hi rab, great to hear from you and thanks for the tip. I actually emailed Abel & Cole about it and have had a friendly reply but they can't help much as they have to ALSO be organic. Similarly the local health food shop (Oliver's) were very friendly and responsive but couldn't offer much and asked us to tell them about any suppliers we discover. Apparently there just aren't that many organic farms in the SE. Of course our diet makes no restirctions on how the the food is produced, just where.
