OUR STORY…

The Great British Food Hub was born out of necessity when a similar online platform announced it would be withdrawing from the UK market! Dozens of local communities, thousands of customers and hundreds of local producers were left wondering “what next?”.

 

Unable to find a suitable replacement platform one of those producers, Gillian a pig farmer from Strathblane, along with her partner David, decided to create a new website from scratch.

 

The click & collect model makes shopping quick & easy. Customers can shop from local food & drink producers they might otherwise never know about and reconnect to their food, learn how it was produced – it’s the ultimate in traceability! Producers are rewarded with a fair price for their hard work, with 90% staying in your local economy! Food miles are super-low as producers are local to each Hub and food waste is reduced as they only bring produce that has been pre-ordered online. Bringing everything full circle is the fact that producers too want to connect with their end consumers, share their stories, receive feedback and ideas direct from those who are going to enjoy their goods.

 

If there isn’t currently a Food Hub near you, why not consider setting one up? We’ll give you lots of support and help.

 

If you’re a producer then selling through LOCAL Food Hubs are a much better option than paying an upfront fee to a Farmer’s Market, with no guarantee of any sales and possibly hours sanding in the cold and rain!
