Chutney Collective Profile in Greenpoint Gazette

The DP Chutney Collective treasures our North Brooklyn neighborhood(s) of Greenpoint and Williamsburg (we sit on sort of the nebulous dividing line between the two) and is pleased as planters' punch to be profiled in the current issue of the Greenpoint Gazette! A few inaccuracies slipped into the article, for example, while we love Charleston we've never lived there and merely explained its importance as an 18th century seaport and entry area to America for chutneys culled abroad; no, we weren't snagging jars from foreign sailors in the 1700s.

Another more important correction to be made is that The Collective's chutneys are not organic. Whenever feasible we do use organic ingredients and they are designated as such on the labels, but our commitment remains always to working as closely as possible (and indeed, almost exclusively) with local, small, family-run farms employing sustainable agricultural methods.
