At Poppy’s Kitchen ethically sound food is very important to us so we always look to use Fairtrade, environmentally friendly, local, seasonal food with the minimum food miles. All of our fruit and vegetables are organic or spray free , we only use free range high welfare meat and our fish is from sustainable and where possible local sources.
