In the linked article, Huel’s nutritionist James Collier details the way each ingredient is harvested and processed, and where it is gotten from.

In this lengthy forum thread, users take Huel to task for sourcing ingredients from India and China, when the same crops (sunflower oil, pea and rice protein) are available within the E.U., and some suggest that the sources are chosen to maximize profit.
