Eat Me Chutneys' mission is to tackle food system injustices by creating socially good jars of chutneys. They have set out to tackle two issues in our current food system: 1) wastage of wonky and bruised produce and 2) unfair trade terms for farmers in developing nations. They tackle this by making two types of chutneys. The first one which they call Rescued Chutneys rescues the wonky produce and converts it into lip-smacking chutneys. Working part-time in 2014, they rescued nearly 700kgs of produce thereby averting 0.53 metric tonnes of CO2 emissions. The second category called Fairtrade Chutneys uses Fairtrade certified ingredients instead of conventionally farmed ingredients thereby paying a fair price to its farmers in developing nations. In doing so, Eat Me Chutneys is the ONLY venture across Australia and New Zealand with a Fairtrade certification for its chutneys. In fact, its 1 of 2 globally with such a certification. And Eat Me Chutneys doesn't stop there - they offer mentoring and employment to disadvantaged female job seekers in their social enterprise so that their chutneys have an even bigger impact. They are working with Sydney Asylum Seeker Centre and The Salavation Army to address this.
