Richard Whittaker Ltd are part of a BBC Documentary with Lucy Bee

One of our customers, Lucy Bee, has been chosen by the BBC World News Channel to film the journey of the spice, organic turmeric, from the start of its growing in Kerala in India, to its presence on the supermarket shelves.

As a company, Lucy Bee are passionate about causes such as Fair Trade, ethical and sustainable living as well as providing great natural food products, something we at Richard Whittaker know all about with our Pure Gluten Free products.

They have developed a family of store cupboard staples which continues to grow and part of their success comes from a dedication to making sure that their range is of the highest quality possible. Richard Whittaker play an important part in that development and maintaining of standards by providing BRC Grade A facilities for the processing and packing of parts of their natural product ranges.

Lucy Bee Organic Turmeric

As we are the dry material processor of their products, such as the Organic Turmeric Powder, the film crew spent the morning here at the Mayfield Centre filming the process and interviewing Lucy.  We are looking forward to seeing the documentary ‘Made on Earth: The Story of Global Trade’ but will have to wait until autumn and the disappointment is, even though it will be watched by potentially 94 million people across the globe, it will unfortunately not be screened in the UK.
