About our Produce
"To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art." - La Rochefoucauld
"....the most important point about cooking good food is getting the best possible produce in the first place...." - Rick Stein
Real Food, Real People - meet the local people who produce and supply your food. This is an introduction to some of our suppliers for whom customer satisfaction and quality of produce goes hand in hand with environmental awareness and producer responsibility. Food sourced by The Local Food Company is what La Rochefoucauld would call "intelligent food". It is honest, often still produced on a small scale and consequently is able to get from source to you much more quickly. Products are marked with food miles from producer or processor to us to help you make choices.
We are really proud to work with this selection of Devon producers and retailers who enable us to bring you such an extensive range of good food. We currently work with over 100 West Country suppliers bringing you the best selection of Westcountry food available online.
If you know of other excellent suppliers who might like to share their produce, please tell them to contact us. We do not charge set up costs, monthly fees or commissions. We just ask they give us a fair price so we can make a fair living for our role in the sale of their goods. We have a supplier information pack available by emailing us.
