What to buy at Better Food: Handcrafted crispy lavosh flatbreads, plain or with added seeds, herbs and spices
Jane Chong and Jane Kippax—both mothers of children with Down Syndrome and both passionate about good food—founded Step and Stone to begin to address the gap in employment opportunities for young people with learning disabilities. From their premises in Knowle, the two Janes lead a team in making lavosh flatbreads—packed full of flavour, beautifully packaged and perfect for developing baking skills in young people facing challenges in finding employment elsewhere.
Mission and values: Step and Stone are at heart a social enterprise, creating opportunities for young people who are isolated from the workplace and often from society, and helping them into paid employment. But behind their social mission, their products support the best local suppliers, using predominantly organic ingredients, Gloucestershire flour and Somerset rapeseed oil to make their delicious, vegan lavosh.
Location: Knowle, BS4 (1.3 miles to Better Food)
We love them because… The flavour of these lavosh alone would win us over, not to mention the gift-friendly packaging, but the fabulous work that goes on behind the scenes at Step and Stone makes their products completely irresistible.
