We're only as good as our growers

That's why we try and source locally to keep our food miles low.

Quality Produce
all year round

When it’s the right season, we buy the very best local produce from British growers and suppliers. Beyond that, we work with an established network of growers and suppliers across Europe and around the globe—receiving daily deliveries from Rungis Market Paris and others as well as Sunday deliveries from Milan and Barcelona.

 

Our suppliers are long-term partners that have met a strict criteria of ethical working practices and accreditations so you can have peace of produce mind.
