We love good food. As an avid fan of the delicious and nutritious, we’re always on the look out for new tasty treats on Crowdfunder. We’ve seen some outstanding foodie campaigns over the years, from Snact’s fruit jerky to Elderbrook’s cordials and Smith & Sinclair’s boozy sweets – and let’s not forget the fabulous team at Growhampton.

Here’s five delicious projects cooking up a storm on Crowdfunder right now:
