Our food system is changing - concerns about health and environmental risks of our current industrial model of manufacturing goods are now in the forefront of people's minds.
That's why The Fine Food Merchant only partners with suppliers who can offer the best and most responsibly sourced local products.
Consumers are taking the time to educate themselves about the products they are buying; the ingredients that go in them, as well as the practice or processes that went into making them, where they came from and how they got here.
Our suppliers tick all of those boxes, here's just a few of them:
