Quex In The City

Tooling down to my local Premier (Costcutter in old money) here in the Millionaires' Metropolis for my copy of Gra*ia this morning, I was pleasantly surprised to see that they'd made room among the piles of sweet, chewy crap for a genuinely healthy product from our own Thanetian shores!

Sitting on an appropriately rustic wooden display stand was a selection of Quex Foods' extra virgin, cold pressed rapeseed oil products (click on the pic for more info). I arxed the chap behind the counter if it was selling well. 'We've only had it a few days, but yes, we've sold a few,' he intoned. So I bought a bottle to toss something in later.

How satisfying to see that it's not just Waitrose that's stocking local goodies. And with the Eminesque allusion to 'virgin' and 'rape', I'm sure it won't be long before the twitterati of Hoxton and Stokey latch on to another of Fannit's finest either!

It's great to see local produce being promoted. But when the locals have been subjected with pollen and horrid smell of the rape seed plant...are they going to buy rape seed oil? Prefer olive/sunfloer any day!!

Rapeseed oil is great for everyone except the planet.
