With a Bachelor in marine science, Laurelyn and her team at Our Patch are passionate about sustainability and looking after our environment. She is also as passionate about Tasmanian pureness and premium quality ingredients that Tasmanian farmers are proudly renowned for. When raised surrounded by such delicious produce within the purest part of the world, amongst a community as tight as our little Patch of pureness, it is a no brainer that all ingredients are locally sourced supporting local businesses, farmers and families.
Consumers can contribute toward being environmentally conscious/aware and support their community, purchasing items grown or manufactured nearby. By purchasing food and other goods that are produced locally you stimulate the economy in which you live. Jobs are created or retained, the community gains confidence, families are supported, and as the saying goes one hand washes the other.
What you are about to put into your mouth or serve to someone else, just like your dog's meals, you can be confident that a product like Our Patch Pet Food has been produced in a way that meets high consumer expectations and simply not any old second rate ingredients are used. Because it is hard to know or see what potentially harmful chemicals and byproducts could be used in production by less conscious or concerned overseas manufacturers and multinational companies.
It takes fewer resources, and in turn fewer greenhouse emissions, to deliver a barrel of flaxseed oil from town to town than a journey across the country or around the globe. And what we love the most is local ingredients are more likely to be fresh compared to items that are transported long distances.
...among businesses to network and collaborate. Deciding to buy from other businesses within your community can lead to new connections from paddock to plate, and the opportunity to contribute with purpose whether it is in a large or small way people can support one another’s brands, dreams and environment.
