Plantain is an all-natural, vegan-friendly, gluten-free nibble that provides the perfect base for other flavours: wild garlic, spices or a light smattering of salt. Purely uses only sustainably farmed plantain from Ecuador, suited to health-conscious types.
Price From £1.99 for a 75g bag

the-sam-saf-t-ice-system-from-fem-includes-a-scoop-guard-and-alarmFEM has launched a device that helps protect ice scoops and enhance ice hygiene.

The Saf-T-Ice scoop also has dual germ guards that keep knuckles and thumbs away from the ice, while its narrow chute prevents spills.
Price £119
