Locavore’s Big Plan sets out our ambition to scale up what we do to launch a large social enterprise grocery store which offers a viable alternative to supermarkets. We want our new store to be the sort of place most people can do most of their grocery shopping so that we can increase our market share and use it to shape a food system which is better for society and our environment.
Instead of food profits going to big corporations and their shareholders we want your food spending to work harder for society. That means investing in local growers, paying fair wages (we’re a living wage employer) and developing other initiatives which help build a fairer and more sustainable society.
Our Grocery Store sells a wide variety of local organic produce as well as a big selection of organic groceries and household items. We aim to offer a really wide selection so that people can choose to bypass the supermarket and get most of what they need at fair and affordable prices. As we are a social enterprise all our profits go back into forwarding our aims of building a better local food system, so your money goes much further in the local community.
The range in the shop includes:
- Fresh local and organic fruit & vegetables
- Organic and local cheese & dairy
- Loose organic grains, pulses, flours, herbs & spices
- Fresh & frozen meat
- Eco household cleaners
- Organic pantry goods
- Fresh bread from Different Bread every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and from Freedom Bakery Tuesday to Sunday
