Local Business. Local food.

90% of your customers want to eat healthily. 70% want more local food. Most want less waste and fewer food miles. Oh, and they want it cheaper than Tescos.

They don’t ask for much, do they?

We can help you make them happy. Locally produced food is healthier because fresh food has significantly more nutrients. It travels less so needs less packaging. It’s typically grown on smaller farms so tends to have fewer chemicals.
