Meet Hodmedods


Hodmedod works with British farmers to produce and source a range of pulses and grains, with a commitment to providing wholesome quality food that's more sustainably produced. All Hodmedod's pulses and grains are British-grown – and always will be. Our first product was the fava bean, grown in Britain since the Iron Age but little eaten in recent centuries. They're delicious, nutritious and good for the soil and bees. Split fava beans are especially versatile and easy to cook as they don’t need soaking. Since launching our fava beans in late 2012 we've been working to search out and develop production of other less well-known foods, like "black badger" carlin peas and quinoa. We offer our products as dried ingredients for cooking as well as in more accessible cans and now as roasted ready-to-eat snacks too.
