According to a recent article in the Telegraph, it is said that the wellness industry, encompassing nutrition, fitness, cosmetics and more is now worth up to £2.8 trillion worldwide, according to the Global Wellness Institute. The sector is growing rapidly. By 2022, British consumers are forecast to spend £487 per head annually on “wellness”, according to analytics firm GlobalData.

Well being is a thread that runs throughout our innovation projects, especially within Trelonk Farm as good nutrition, is the key ingredient to overall health and well being.

Trelonk Farm is the Nutraceutical (a foodstuff that has physiological benefits, or otherwise known as a functional food) market through growing specialist oil seed crops that produce nutrient dense oils. When we took the decision to diversify our farming practice it was with the intention to capitalise on this booming market. With the added value that these oil-producing flowers also have such a positive impact on wildlife, particularly pollinators and the environment.

From some of what is grown at Trelonk Farm, Borage Oil promotes healthy hair & skin, helps Rheumatoid Arthritis and is a great source of GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid). Calendula Oil is rich in Calendric Acid, whilst also having known anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Sunflower Oil is rich in vitamins A, C, D and can help skin conditions such as Acne. (Image © InterTek )
