Food Assembly named Best British Food Initiative by BBC

Congratulations to the team behind The Ladywell Food Assembly, which has just won the BBC Food and Farming Award for Best Initiative in British Food 2015. The Food Programme explains:

"The Food Assembly is a social enterprise that enables direct trade between local food producers and customers through an online market. After buying online, customers pick up their food from a pop-up market where they get to meet local producers, as well as their neighbours. It not only meets needs of producers (who receive 83.3% of every sale compared with 10-15% with supermarkets), but also growing demand for local food."

Over 100 people came to the Launch which was a fantastic response to a new initiative. We need people to order regularly to keep it going though so please sign up. there's no commitment to buy each week or a certain amount.
