The smoothie combines coconut milk, banana and nutritious baobab powder from Africa’s iconic trees. The Bar also serves baobab rum cocktails! These are all suitable for people following vegan and gluten-free diets.

More about baobab

The powder comes from pods which grow on baobab trees (famous for their stout trunks and spreading canopies).

Working in partnership with charity PhytoTrade Africa, families on the continent are harvesting the abundant fruits to help them pay for family healthcare, children’s education and household necessities. Because they’re earning money from baobab they have an incentive to protect the trees – which is good news for baobab woodlands and the biodiversity that they support.

Sourcing and recycling

We’re proud that over 80% of the money we spend on catering suppliers is spent on businesses in Cornwall and Devon. We use only Cornish meat, dairy and eggs in our on-site cafes – as well as Cornish salad leaves, when they are in season. Find out about our sourcing.

We recycle a lot of our food waste in a huge composter that transforms it into a nitrogen-rich soil enhancer for our gardens.
