Organic food (Environment)
Ollie Hunter and Lauren Bransby have purchased the Wheatsheaf public house in Chilton Foliat, Wiltshire, part-funded by a loan from Triodos Bank. Their grand vision is to slowly rejuvenate the pub into a place full of delicious fairly-priced food and drink, live music, art and fun. Their aim is to be the most sustainable pub in the UK, with wood stoves, a wood-fired pizza oven, and their own water source and filtration system.
Apart from being environmentally friendly, Organic food doesn't use hydrogenated fats and controversial additives including aspartame, tartrazine, MSG, leading to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Lending in this sector include food shops, butchers and restaurants.
