We have an amazing band of suppliers who we work closely and collaboratively with to bring you the best quality, tastiest foods we can. Many are local and, just like us, are small independent businesses. It’s often very the people that produce the food that deliver it to the shop. We look further afield for what we’re unable to find locally and many of our national suppliers source their products from, you’ve guessed it, small independent businesses. We’re passionate about keeping the “big boys” at bay and supporting amazing small, artisan producers when and where we can.
