Good quality is essential.
Our fundamental belief is that few things in life are more important than the food you buy, even the everyday cupboard and fridge-fillers that are at the heart of any weekly shop. Every essential Waitrose item is sourced with the same care and commitment to quality, sustainable sourcing, animal welfare and respect for the environment as all of our other product ranges. For example:
Fruit & vegetables
essential Waitrose fruit and vegetables from the UK come from LEAF accredited growers (Linking Environment and Farming) who share our commitment to sustainable farming, promoting wildlife habitats and protecting the environment.
As with all fish sold at Waitrose, all of our essential Waitrose fish range, from smoked mackerel fillets to fish fingers, are sourced only from well managed fisheries and aquaculture operatios who are committed to sustainable fishing.
essential Waitrose lamb is reared by specially selected farmers in the UK and New Zealand to high animal welfare and environmental standards.
