Who is B.?
Beth is a chef, passionate about creating delicious food from seasonal and ethical ingredients.
She started out working in sustainable food systems research, exploring how food and farming can be used as a vehicle to address the big challenges we face as a society. After learning a lot of the theory, Beth decided to take her passion for food in a more practical direction. She trained to be a chef at Dumfries and Galloway College then worked as Pastry Chef at a local fine dining restaurant.
Then Covid-19 came along. Work in the hospitality sector became very uncertain.
However, this was just the push Beth needed to realise her long held ambition to start her very own food business. Taking the knowledge from a career in sustainable food research, her love of growing fruit and vegetables and chef skills, Beth creates high flavour, high impact bakes that don’t cost the Earth.
B. on the Road has been a great opportunity for Beth to connect with and celebrate local and Scottish suppliers who share her values. She hopes that customers will be inspired to think differently about their food and join Beth in building a fairer and more sustainable food system, one afternoon tea at a time.
B. on the Road’s values
We take every opportunity to limit the environmental impact of our business activities. Our fruit and vegetables are grown using agroecological methods, reducing the CO2 emissions and supporting biodiversity in our garden. We are conscientious when we choose our ingredients and suppliers. Our products are packaged in compostable packaging. We recycle, we minimise food waste, we play our part in tackling climate change.
We are 100% honest about our ingredients, what we make and where we source from. There is no false marketing here. We value the trust that our suppliers and customers place in us.
Nature sets our menu. We celebrate the flavours that each season brings. In doing so we help connect customers with the natural environment of South West Scotland.
We take the fairest route to making our products, even when it’s not the easiest. We believe producers should be paid a fair price and have good working conditions, and animals working in the food chain should have a good life. We use suppliers who believe this too. Our suppliers are paid on time and we respond quickly and kindly to concerns raised by our customers.
From growing produce, to hand crafting artisan products, to delivering to our customers, we uphold the highest level of food safety.
Only the most delicious recipes make it to our customers’ doorsteps. We thoroughly test each product to ensure it’s the best it can be. This is a burden we diligently accept!
