The original Foraging Fox
Don't waste good food, be inventive
Our name was inspired by and in memory of Frankie’s father, Roland Fox, the original “Foraging Fox”, a plant and mushroom expert. Frankie’s childhood was an idyllic one, growing, identifying and foraging plants with Dad, and learning to cook things up with Mum.
How it started
Admiring the produce
When Frankie left her career in the City to spend more time with her children, she wanted to pass on her knowledge of where food came from. They started by finding and growing things to eat in their own garden and, in the process, exploring ways to preserve their produce. The Foraging Fox Beetroot Ketchup started out as a kitchen project with her kids to find a way to use their bumper crops of apples and beetroot!
Frankie and Desiree
At the launch of The Foraging Fox at the Speciality & Fine Food Fair 2014 Frankie asked her friend and old colleague Desiree Parker to be a Co-Founder. Having previously worked together more than 10 years ago, Frankie & Desiree realised that, even now, they both still share the same passions and both recognised the potential to build a business that was dedicated to new ingredients and fresh thinking.
3 years in the making…
Worth every second!
Our Beetroot ketchup was the result of finding new ways to enjoy home-grown fruit and vegetables. After all, you don’t waste good food – you just become more inventive with it!
Our ketchup took 3 years to make and we hope you enjoy every mouthful!
