Since the opening of Noel's Farm Shop at Sutton Green Garden Centre in 2012, owner Noel Dobson has continued to grow the business and has recently expanded his offering with a whole host of zero waste products.
Found in the countryside between Guildford and Woking, Noel has been researching zero waste products for the past few years, following demand from his loyal and environmentally aware customer base.
Customers can now choose from food, including dried fruit, nuts, pulses, grains, cereals, lentils, porridge oats, banana chips, popcorn, rice, pasta and seeds, which are available in gravity bins.
The produce is all delivered to the farm shop in paper bags and customers can then bring in their own jars or containers to fill with their chosen produce or use the paper bags provided.
"The whole food and drink industry is moving towards zero waste products and my customers are more inclined to use these kinds of products," says Noel.
