Enjoy the fruity all-natural flavours in Urban Cordial’s low-sugar and food waste-fighting range.
Spurred on by the fact that over a third of global food doesn’t reach our plates, Urban Cordial saves lumpy or bumpy fruit (aka fruit that’s imperfect in looks but perfectly edible) from British farms to use in their high-quality cordial recipes.
This approach is good for the planet, but also for farmers, who are under increasing pressure to produce more for less.
The range is produced in small batches, going from farm to bottle in 24 hours. Any leftover fruit pulp goes to local farms for animal feed, meaning it’s a zero-waste process too.
With very little sugar used, Urban Cordial offers a healthier alternative to fellow cordials and squashes, while also keeping flavours rich, ripe and real.
As well as a refreshing soft drink, the cordials make the perfect cocktail mixer. That’s why you’ll find them matched in sets with Sapling Spirits, creators of the world’s first climate positive vodka. The perfect planet-friendly drinks pairing.
Urban Cordial started on Chief Juicer Natasha Steele’s allotment. It was there she foraged for ingredients which she could experiment with in low-sugar cordial recipes that showed off the fruit’s natural flavours.
After proving a hit at her local farmers’ market, Natasha decided to develop her range of cordials, eventually leaving her job in the city and turning her hobby into a business.
Aware of the frighteningly high levels of food waste worldwide, she wanted her drinks to be part of the solution. So she reached out to farms and began taking on their surplus fruit for Urban Cordial recipes.
To date, Urban Cordial has helped to save over 60 tonnes of fruit from landfill.
