Welcome to the Local Flavours page

As an independent regional retailer in southern England, it’s vital that we play a pivotal role in supporting local food producers and the rural economy; this is very much part of our business ethics as a co-operative. Our Local Flavours range, which we first introduced in 2007 on the Isle of Wight and then extended across southern England as demand has increased, promotes local distinctiveness and is very popular with our customers.

We are one of the very few major retailers who run our local sourcing as a separate entity within our business. This enables us to develop and retain very close relationships with our suppliers and to offer our customers a fabulous range of local food and drink, produced by people who are very passionate about what they do.Kate Hibbert, Local Sourcing Manager

We work closely with:

It is 40 years since the Health and Safety at Work Act received Royal Assent, providing a new regulatory framework for work place health and safety in Great Britain. This has helped make Britain one of the safest places in the world to work, saving thousands of lives, preventing many more injuries at work and reducing the economic and social costs of health and safety failures.

The Food Standards Agency is an independent government department responsible for food safety and hygiene across the UK. They work with businesses to help them produce safe food, and with local authorities to enforce food safety regulations.
