The Food Collective – One Year On!

It’s one year since we opened the doors of The Food Collective – a massive thank you to everyone who has supported us. We’ve come along way in the last 12 months.

Products

We have gradually developed our product range working hard to seek out eco conscious, sustainable and local producers wherever we can.

We have particularly looked for producers that have a social ethos that chimes with our own and for those that care about people and the environment.

If you take a look at our “Products we Love” page I think you will agree we are growing and interesting and diverse product range. 

Food Club

Your custom and support has helped us to continue to run our weekly food club which is an essential resource to local families and vulnerable people. The Club now supports more than 80 people every week. Without you buying local and supporting the shop we would not be able to fund the Food Club so thank you for supporting your local community.

Zero Waste

In August 2021 we launched our Zero waste scheme and have been aspiring to reduce waste usage ever since. We installed dry foods units and gave away free containers, we introduced shampoo and cleaning product refill options and we actively sort out products that were more environmentally friendly such as shampoo soaps and bamboo toothbrushes.

You, our community, have been at the heart of this project.

Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to continuing to support and work with you all going forward.
