In November 2019, Hill & Vale opened its online doors to supply single origin spices and authentic tasting blends to home and professional chefs. The company is owned and run by Angus and was started with a singular purpose of improving our food supply chain.
While working in the ingredients and flavours industry in London, Angus took the decision to enrol on a part time masters in agricultural economics. His intention was to boost his career prospects and upskill in analytical and technical skills but what resulted was an increased scepticism in how our current food system operates. After three years of study and now certain that change was needed, Angus left his job and started a company that would try to help fix the food chain with flavour.
