Hoogly is the pronunciation of ‘hyggelig’, a nordic word used to describe the feelings of warmth and well being. That’s what Hoogly tea is all about, with 29 indulgent blends for you to choose from. Tea enthusiast Tina Gloggengieser, from Aarhus in Denmark, now living in Brighton, is passionate about food, tea and the nordic way of life: ‘Hygge’. Her teas are hand-blended and packed in the south east of England, ethically sourced and fairly traded. The tea pyramids are also fully biodegradable and made out of a plant extract, so good for the planet too.
Indie Bay Snacks
Indie Bay Snacks started out after their founder faced an empty snack drawer, a house full of hungry kids and a run to the local shop, only to be annoyed at the options available. They wanted to make something tasty and satisfying, but healthy too, and so their first product line was born: Pretzel Bites. The company now offers a range of flavours, from Milk and Dark Chocolate to Smokin’ BBQ and Easy Cheesy.

Firepot makes healthy, hearty, lightweight meals for outdoor pursuits. The founders wanted their time in the outdoors to be punctuated by slow-cooked, natural food that tasted delicious and didn't weigh them down, but they couldn't find it anywhere. So they made their own in a small barn in Dorset. Inspired by their travels, Firepot has developed a range of wholesome recipes, including Spicy Pork Noodles, Vegan Orzo Bolognese and Porcini Mushroom Risotto. All you have to do is add water. Perfect for adventures big and small (or just the odd night in), Firepot meals are made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients, palm-oil free and come with a compostable packaging option.
