Don’t get wasted this Christmas!
Hands up who’s feeling festive? Got the tree up? Planned the Christmas dinner? We’ve been doing all those things at Nina & Co., but much as we love this very special time of year, we HATE the massive amount of
STOP THIS FRACKING NONSENSE – NOW!
So this is democracy, is it? The public (the voting public I might add) are against it. The local authorities are against it. It is endangering the very foundations of our country. It’s damaging the environment. But the Government has
Food waste – from field to plate!
Everyone bangs on about food waste. The Nina & Co. team certainly does. But we tend to think of food waste as the left-overs we put in our bins or supermarkets surplus stock. Hands up who has thought about what
How people power won the day in Bethnal Green
I know a lot of my regular readers are used to me ranting and raving about the supermarkets, food waste and injustices in general. Today you’re in for a surprise. I am breaking the mould and sharing a bit of
The horrors of supermarket slavery
I’m horrified, sickened and bewildered in equal measures about the modern slavery revelations and recent prosecutions in the Midlands. Apart from the appalling fact that this is going on here in the UK, it concerns me that so many of
Supermarkets – profit over service – EVERY time

A hearty reason to take more roughage with the smooth
Who remembers the days when fibre was called roughage? Those were probably the days before the famous F-Plan diet when human flatulence was endangering the ozone layer. I guess the R-Diet didn’t have such a catchy ring to it. But
£20,000,000 down the plughole each year!
We’re definitely crying over spilt milk here at Nina & Co. £20 million’s worth of spilt milk, to be exact. That’s how much milk gets poured down the drain each year because it’s gone out of date. And that’s just
The Edwardian food revolution
Despite being just a short nine-year interlude (1901-1910), the Edwardian era and the start of the 20th century changed the face of food and dining for us here in the UK. It fashioned some traditions, like afternoon tea, that are
The shame of Britain’s starving children
Starving children with rickets and other diseases caused by malnutrition. No warm clothes to wear in cold weather. Parents collapsing from hunger because they have given all their food to their children. Another refugee crisis? No. A humanitarian crisis? YES.
Telling the Christmas turkey to get stuffed!
If you’re keeping up, and I hope you are, you’ll remember we recently blogged about the increase in people adopting a flexitarian diet. Now, according to research, one in twelve people in the UK will be telling the turkey to
Why fish fraud is unnecessary and just plain stupid
Perhaps reports of cod being substituted by other cheaper fish doesn’t generate the same horror as the horse meat fraud did, but it’s still a matter of huge concern. Too many people are too concerned about making money and increasing
