Meet the producer

I’d love to introduce you to Duncan Farrington.

Duncan created Farrington’s Mellow Yellow in 2005 as the UK’s first seed-to-bottle producer of cold pressed rapeseed oil and has been producing his award-winning range of oils and dressings ever since.

The environment is at the heart of everything he does and so in January 2020, Farrington’s became the world’s first food brand to be certified as both carbon and plastic neutral! His rapeseed oil is low in saturated fat, rich in Omega 3 and has a high smoke point making it incredibly versatile and perfect for all types of roasting, frying, baking and dressing.

Farrington’s Mellow Yellow can be found in Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Co-op, Ocado and independent farm shops and delis. Duncan is a fourth generation farmer and is incredibly passionate about soil and the impact sustainable farming can have on climate change.

He studied rapeseed oil in University and a passion was awoken for the fantastic culinary properties and nutritional benefits packed into the tiny black seeds. Following years of research, he launched Farrington’s Mellow Yellow.

Provenance is incredibly important to him and they ensure that passion, attention to detail and quality ingredients goes into every bottle he makes.

Try using Farrington’s Mellow Yellow Rapeseed Oil in a simple pesto recipe to be stirred through pasta. Brilliant for quick mid-week meals for busy parents, healthy, tasty and can be easily amended depending on what you’ve got in the fridge!
