The Farmer

Sustaination enables me to increase my sales to more local businesses, which means I’m getting a better price than I would selling on contract. The way it helps me collaborate on deliveries with other local businesses is fantastic.

The Pub

Locally-sourced food is an important selling point for us, but it’s so time consuming finding good, consistent supply. Sustaination lets us talk with many local suppliers at once - saving hours on the phone each month. The local message board is good for picking up seasonal and special offers.

The Shop

Our customers love buying local produce and supporting our area, and even want to help us with deliveries! It’s important to differentiate ourselves from a supermarket, and with all these local offers the problem now is getting people to believe we’re cheaper than they are!

The Wholesaler

Our two big challenges are keeping our stock new and interesting with lots of variety, and finding new trading partners locally. Our role is shifting as electric vehicles and the internet change the nature of distribution, and I’m impressed how Sustaination helps us and recognises the important role local distributors play.

The Hotel

We want to source local food, but have had trouble finding consistent suppliers. Using Sustaination we have been able to work with locals farmers to create a more consistent supply of top quality produce. The site makes it easy for us to find alternatives to fill in the shortfalls.

The Baker

As a small, local baker the site dramatically reduces the time it takes for me to talk with lots of different suppliers and explore new markets. Everyone should sign up to this, it’s a great idea.
