Why Buy Local?

IGD research found that for every 10 we spend locally it creates 24 for the local economy, thats 10 more than the same money spent in one of the larger supermarkets, but its not all about money. We are increasingly more interested in knowing where our food comes from, how it is produced, the person behind the product, and want to give our kids wholesome and healthy food, just how it should be.

British supermarkets currently have 80% of the UK grocery market. According to the Daily Mail in May 2007, 25 small shops close per week in the UK due to pressure on price, prompting a competition commission investigation. Did you know that our largest UK Retailer now accounts for 1 in 8 pounds we spend in the UK?

Heres what we think are 10 compelling reasons to buy local produce:

  • Enjoy Fresh Food that Tastes as it should
  • Lower your Food Miles
  • Reduce your Carbon Footprint
  • Reduce Unnecessary Waste
  • Less Packaging
  • Experience diversity of Local and Unique products
  • Support your Local Economy
  • Traceability - Be confident that you know where your food comes from
  • Whole Foods with Less Additives and Preservatives
  • Eat Healthier produce that has not sat for days on a shelf is not just a place to carry out your weekly shopping its a chance to buy into a whole philosophy.
