Barley Buzz is a vibrant new addition to Cambridge market. This young business has been awarded a silver standard business award for their efforts toward sustainability.
Organic British Barley is the main ingredient in these freshly made salads. All dishes are vegetarian with the possibility of making them vegan straightforward. Health is a priority for this stall and so no sugary foods are stocked. They also work with the local farmers to source seasonal produce. In summer time, they grow their own herbs that are used in the salads or stews.
Barley Buzz donates its surplus food to a local shelter or adds it to redistribution apps such as Olio and Too Good to Go. All food discards go to composting. In order to avoid packaging wastage, they encourage customers to bring their own containers. The packaging materials used are biodegradable.
“Barley Buzz is about sharing wholesome food which creates memories and connects people. We were extremely excited and proud of being part of this amazing network. Understanding the impact we have on the environment is a big responsibility but small changes can make a huge difference”.
