Dear reader,

It’s not often you get a letter nowadays. We thought this might be a good opportunity to enlighten you on these magic beans!

Let's start off with the fact that Lupins actually leave nature better than they found it. 🌍

They do this by a number of things. First, by fostering pollination: Lupins employ a combination of visual cues, colour, fragrance, and specialised flower structures to attract pollinators. This pollination process promotes the production of seeds and contributes to the survival and genetic diversity of their species. 🐝

They also play a valuable role in enriching the soil. One way they do this is by adding biomass, its roots are long (reaching 2m!), so when the plant is harvested, all that organic matter adds nutrients and feeds the soil inhabitants 🪱. They also fix atmospheric nitrogen, which not only benefits the Lupin plants themselves but also improves the soil quality, supporting the growth of other plants in the ecosystem! If that wasn’t enough, Lupins are strong, they resist plagues (virtually no pesticides are needed) and they need very little water to grow.

By incorporating Lupins into crop rotating systems, farmers improve biodiversity, their land and can sell other pulses. So Lupins don’t just leave the environment better than they found it, but they also provide an extra source of income to farmers. Now that is pretty cool. 😎

Do we have you on team Lupin yet? 🌱💜

Lots of Love,




The process of becoming a BCorp helps us keep focus every day on what is truly important to us at Tarwi.

It’s a big process that normally takes 2 years to be completed and involves a detailed assessment of our impact in 5 areas: Governance, Employees, Community, Customers, and the Environment.

Watch this space, we will share more as we go! 👀


(some) good

We donate monthly to Fareshare and the Felix Project Organisation.

Their focus is on fighting hunger in the UK by feeding children, families, the homeless, the elderly, refugees, people on a low income, struggling with their mental health or with addiction, as well as domestic abuse survivors.

Sourcing our Lupins

We source Lupins from Western Australia, supporting regenerative farming practices.

European production is limited, so we're bridging gaps between farmers, academia, and industry to enhance it. Our aim is for 100% local sourcing in the future, a gradual process we're committed to.

The way we pack

Plastic is currently the best choice to maximize the quality of our products while protecting its shelf life, helping to prevent food waste.

However, we are always looking for the best solution available and we use innovative technology to minimise our carbon footprint.



We make sure our packaging is recyclable and has the minimum size and weight possible, to minimize our impact.

But we know that the rate of plastic recycling in the UK, per household, is less than 10% - a sad statistic, which is why we want to make sure you know exactly what to do with your empty products.

Empty cases?
