Allium Seeds UK Ltd are pleased to support UK shallot growers

Veg Factor is a zany and fun animation created by creative agency Identity Crisis, tasked with building Shallot awareness online. It aims to to extend demographic reach to younger vegetable shoppers and enhance web presence with engaging media.

The short film features a multi-disciplinary talent show featuring and attended by a range of vegetables, where to everyone’s amazement Shelly the Shallot steals the show with a truly divine performance. The audience are seen crying with tears of joy (mainly the onions).

Equally perfect for fine cuisine, simple home cooking or an effective diet, Shallots are low in fat, count as 1 of your 5 a day, and have high levels of vitamin C – twice that of onions! For recipe ideas and nutritional information, visit our website at www.ukshallot.com
