Live Local. Buy Local. Love Local
LOCALLY produced food, ordered online and delivered directly to your door, makes the new Cumbrian Food Direct service an online weekly shopping service with a difference.
As far as is possible, whatever you buy is grown or made within Cumbria and if it cant be sourced locally, it will be bought in from environmentally-aware suppliers, such as organic producers and fair trade organisations. Customers will get a fantastic (and growing) choice of first-class locally grown foodstuffs and know exactly where they come from - as well as being able to their bit for the environment.
The website allows you to browse products (and producers) and place your order on-line (or by telephone) from the comfort of your own home or office. The goods are delivered into a hub by the producers and orders are then delivered fresh and to your door, wherever you are, on a weekly basis.
Cumbrian Food Direct is based in Maryport with a sub hub in Penrith and it aims to provide a delivery service to customers throughout Cumbria. The project has been generously supported by The Big Lottery Funds Local Food Scheme, The Rural Development Programme for England and Allerdale Borough Council.
Cumbrian Food Direct is already delivering on a weekly basis to an increasing number of homes and offices and, this year will extend its network to schools, holiday cottages, and campsites/caravan parks throughout the county especially in the National Park. Deliveries can also be made to groups of customers at centralised delivery points in order to reduce food miles.
If you would like to set up a local delivery group and at the same time benefit from a regular discount on your shopping or if you would just like more information, then please contact Cath Tyrrell on 01900 818028.
