Rubies in the Rubble is a sustainable food company committed to making food for the future. That's why we make our delicious range of award-winning, premium relishes, ketchups and chutneys from fresh fruit and vegetables that would otherwise be discarded. Our ingredients have to pass a taste test, not a beauty contest. We don't care if its too big, too ripe or just plain pear-shaped. What matters to us is making the best relish around.

Over 1/3 of all produce never reaches our plates. Our mission is to encourage people to waste less, treasure their resources and live more sustainably. We want to save the planet one jar at a time. Help us fight food waste...with relish!
