Allan's Chilli Products

Born from a desire to add that little extra to some of the more bland meals he encountered, Allan Ferguson took to the kitchen to find a tasty combination that would enhance not only all types of meats and fish but cheeses as well. After some time Allan discovered the perfect combinations and you can enjoy the fruits of our labour when you buy one of our products. There are over 12 jellies and sauces to enjoy including apple, mild chilli jelly, pear chilli jelly etcetera. We also have several chilli chutney’s. And Chilli Oatcakes. Allan's chillies pride themselves on the quality of their jellies and sauces by providing the highest quality of service and customer care.

Enriched Being Microgreens

Enriched Being was founded by us, Tara and Paul Scott, and we're on a mission to empower individuals to make small but significant changes for a healthier, more vibrant life. As a qualified nutrition coach and biomedicine expert, we firmly believe that optimal health begins with the food we consume.

Our journey with microgreens began unexpectedly during a nutrition study, where we were wearing continuous glucose monitors to analyse the impact of different foods on our bodies. Little did we know that these tiny greens would become a game-changer in our quest for optimal nutrition and well-being.

We were astonished to discover that microgreens, despite their small size, pack a powerful nutritional punch. In fact, research indicates that these young plants can contain up to 40 times more nutrients than their mature counterparts. This revelation inspired us to delve deeper into the world of microgreens and uncover their incredible health benefits.

Enriched Being Microgreens was born out of our genuine passion for helping others optimise their health. Our mission is to provide you with the highest quality microgreens that are grown with care, using sustainable and organic practices. We meticulously nurture each delicate plant, ensuring they reach their maximum nutritional potential before they grace your plate.

We take pride in offering a wide variety of microgreens, carefully selected for their flavour, texture, and nutritional profiles. From vibrant sunflower shoots to zesty radish greens, our range will delight your taste buds while nourishing your body with an abundance of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

At Enriched Being Microgreens, we strive to be your trusted source for these little wonders of nature. We are committed to transparency, sharing the latest research, and providing resources to help you incorporate microgreens into your daily routine. We believe that small changes can have a profound impact on your health, and we're here to support you every step of the way.
