This is useful as it allows me to produce a dish for a supermarket containing Quorn
(myco proteins) which would be ethically suitable.

From my
research I have found that there is a wide variety of ingredients that can be
used to make desserts as they are sweet. This allows me to make a dessert dish
for the supermarket while using ethical ingredients.

 

From my
research I have also found that there are many vegetables and dairy products
that are organic making them ethically produced. This is useful as it increases
the variety of foods allowing me to create a wide variety of dishes for the
supermarket with ethical products.
