About Chutney for Change

We make chutney from fruit and vegetables provided to us which are either bruised or over-ripe and not suitable for retail sale.
We sourse these from supermarkets, local allotment holders, growers, wholesalers and farmers. The chutney is produced by volunteer and profits from the sale of chutney allows us to provide taining for hygiene certificates for our volunteers.

We also provide retail and customer service experience when selling the chutney.

In addition to this we encourage our volunteers to develop their own entrepreneurial ambitions by exchanging skills for chutney, volunteers to sell their own communities. This is a great opportunity to use the retailing skills developed with Chutney for Change for their own benefit.
