It is our purchasing policy to promote the use of local suppliers and locally produced or grown products where possible. We pride ourselves on being a customer focused business and, as such, we are always looking to supply and satisfy customers’ requirements. Our quality standards and price competitiveness are exacting and our desire to maintain them is always our ultimate goal. If this can be achieved by promoting locally sourced products and businesses then this can only help strengthen our ties within the local community and offer value for money. Should a local supplier be uncompetitive, we would still offer the customer the opportunity to use them so long as the increased cost can be recovered; we will, however, not cut corners on quality.
We further seek to promote the ideals of fair trade, both in sourcing produce and in negotiating trading terms with our suppliers.
We are using Fairtrade and Rain Forest Alliance coffee beans.
We will only be using local suppliers and locally sourced food in and around your region.
Meat and vegetables will be sourced from local farms and we use local suppliers for dairy products.
