Rubies in the Rubble

Here at Serious Food we are seriously impressed with our latest food hero supplier Rubies in the Rubble.

An ingenious London based start-up with seriously ethical values, Rubies in the Rubble make a delicious range of condiments from ingredients that would otherwise be thrown away, often for being simply the wrong shape, size or colour.

Want to know more…check out this short clip of founder Jenny Dawson interviewed on BBC News explaining why she started the company.

Ketchup with half the sugar and twice the fruit… genius!

We’re proud to be stocking this delicious ketchup which boasts far less refined sugar than other brands. The clever team at Rubies in the Rubble have replaced 50% of the sugar with surplus apple and pears, as well as tomatoes. Every 100 litres of their ketchup rescues 41kg of unsaleable pears – what is not to love about that!

Rubies in the Rubble Ketchup is 100% natural a straight-to-table product which we supply in cases of twelve 250g funky looking bottles.
