Meet our growers

Little Beauties co-founder Tristan loves a good chat and values strong, personal connections so it’s no wonder we’ve worked so closely with our growers for so long.

As the Lead Grower Liaison it’s Tristan’s role to ensure we know our growers (really know them).  Like knowing what sustainable growing methods they are using, how they are picking to ensure minimal waste, how they are innovating to look after the land and how they have their coffee!

And we look after our growers by ensuring they get a fair price.  A fair price means they can keep doing the valuable work they do and that even if a fruit doesn’t look super pretty it is still worth picking.

Let’s meet some!
