We’re expanding and moving to Cockenzie House

With the success of our reusable eco-friendly beeswax food wraps we’re expanding and moving out of our home to new business premises at Cockenzie House. The new studio will enable us to make more wraps and meet the high demand. Everyone want to cut down on single use plastic and the beeswax wraps are a great way to achieve this. Use the wraps just like cling film or foil but they last at least 12 months or longer!

Our beeswax wraps are flexible and slightly adhesive. You use the warmth of your hands to shape & seal

around your food or container. Great for lunch packs, cheese, snacks, bread, cut veg, fruit, endless possibilities!

Made with pure beeswax (from East Lothian when available), natural tree resin & jojoba oil  which is melted then infused into 100% cotton cloth.  The beeswax mixture gives the cloth natural antibacterial properties slowing the rate of food decomposition to optimise the life and flavour of your food. Biodegradable so once finished with, cut up and compost.

The packs we make come in varies sizes and fabrics whether you like robots, bees, super heroes, floral, fun & funky or just a plain design, we can make to order. We supply direct from our website, through The Food Assembly and have a growing list of stockists if you would like to stock them.

Available Nationwide!

Seedballs – Change your landscape and help the bees

Seedball tins now available from our store with free postage.

Launched in May 2011, Project Maya’s Seedball project aims to help increase UK urban wildflower and pollinator abundance.

Seed balls provide a simple and effective technique for growing wildflowers from seed and are based on work by the Japanese natural farming innovator Masanobu Fukuoka. Made with clay, compost and chilli powder, seed balls provide protection from seed predators and nutrients for early growth. As the seeds are encased within their own mini-ecosystem, there’s no need to plant the seed balls – just scatter on top of soil or compost and let nature take over.

Plant a seed,  change your landscape and help the bees and butterflies.

Available from our shop, Southside Food Assembly and Haddington Food Assembly.

Haddington Online Farmer’s Market is Open

Food Assembly-HaddingtonWith great weather it’s a perfect time for salads. Order today and create your recipes. How about finely sliced salad turnip & radish mixed with spinach & salad leaves, all from East Coast Organics, topped with natural oak smoked chipotle oil from Black and Gold with a slice of tasty sourdough bread from Dunbar community bakery or Khleb Bakery on the side. Very tasty!

Jennifer won the cotton bag for placing the first order. Will you be the next winner? The 14th order will win a cotton food assembly shopping bag.

By ordering from the assembly you’re supporting local food producers & farmers and reducing the impact of food miles. On average, food at supermarkets has travelled 600 miles. Here at Haddington Food Assembly it’s less than 6 miles!

Your fresh produce from us is so much fresher too, than supermarkets, picked and cut on Monday ready for you to collect. You’ll find many items no more expensive than Tesco and cheaper than Morrisons.

But more importantly it’s all local from East Lothian’s farmers and artisan food producers.

Why not order as a group? If you’re in a small community you can all order separately with just one member collecting everything. What about delivery, if we could deliver your order on Monday night would that help?

The collection day is every Monday between 6 and 7pm
