1. The Careful Cultivation of Heirloom Tomatoes

Plateit's artisan tomato-based sauces owe their rich flavour and vibrant colour to heirloom tomatoes grown locally by passionate farmers. Heirloom tomatoes, known for their unique shapes, colours, and exceptional taste, require special attention and expertise during cultivation. Grown using organic, sustainable farming practices, these juicy tomatoes receive the utmost care and dedication from our producers.

Our skilled community of farmers follows traditional methods passed down through generations, from selecting seeds to nurturing the plants and, finally, handpicking the ripe fruit. This unwavering commitment to detail, combined with eco-friendly practices, ensures that these heirloom tomatoes are carefully cultivated to perfection, making each Plateit tomato-based condiment a true celebration of craftsmanship.

2. Aromatic Herbs: Essence of Local Gardens

The lively flavours and aromatic qualities of the herbs used in Plateit’s condiments can be traced back to local gardens and green spaces, where they are carefully tended by expert hands. Our community of gardeners and horticulturists embraces organic, sustainable practices to cultivate an array of fresh, flavourful herbs such as basil, rosemary, and coriander.

By prioritising sustainable growth, these gardeners help preserve soil health, support pollinators, and nurture the local ecosystem. Their expertise in harvesting the herbs at the peak of their flavour, combined with our artisan methods, elevates Plateit's condiments, ensuring that their flavours are fresh, vibrant, and unforgettable.

3. The Spice of Life: Artisanal Spice Blends

The fragrant spices used in Plateit’s spice rubs and dressings are the product of skilled artisans who have mastered the art of spice blending. Our partners in spice are fiercely passionate about fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, creating handcrafted blends designed to elevate your dishes to new heights of flavour.

These spice blends are carefully crafted by grinding, blending, and roasting various peppers, seeds, and ground roots to enrich your dishes with deep, complex flavours. The unparalleled dedication to quality and sustainability exhibited by these local spice artisans ensures that each handcrafted spice blend adds an authentic, enriching touch to Plateit's artisan condiments.

4. The Sweet Taste of Natural Sweeteners

Plateit’s sweet condiments and dressings are created using a variety of natural sweeteners sourced from sustainable, eco-conscious operations. These sweeteners encompass a range of distinctive flavours and textures–from the rich, golden taste of raw honey to the amber hues of pure maple syrup. The producers of these sweeteners are dedicated to their craft and place great importance on minimising their environmental impact.

Local beekeepers cultivate honey using eco-friendly, ethical beekeeping practices, ensuring that the raw honey used in our condiments is not only delicious but also supports the honeybee population. Similarly, our sources of maple syrup and other unrefined sugars adhere to natural harvesting techniques, resulting in high-quality sweeteners that elevate Plateit’s condiments while respecting the earth's natural resources.
