Celebrate Bristol Beans in UN Year of Pulses 2016

March 10th, 2016

The United Nations has declared 2016 ‘International Year of Pulses‘ – so we’ll be celebrating all varieties of┬áBristol beans and peas and other protein-rich leguminous vegetables from further afield (lentils, chickpeas, etc). They are fundamental┬áto food sustainability (having much lower eco footprints than other protein sources, using less land and producing less greenhouse gasses) and they are a really healthy source of clean protein too.
