My local Co-Op, the East of England Co-Op, have made great efforts over the past few years to source from as many local suppliers as possible.
They have a great sourced locally team (Jason from the team was a guest on my radio show a while ago). I was very lucky to be invited to visit my local branch to pick up some of their locally sourced products to try. The products are integrated throughout the store rather than just being a bolt on.
Although on this visit I didn’t try any of their locally source meat range that is well worth a look and, I would be sure, will be a feature of a future post!
The locally sourced producer cards are a great idea to signpost what is on offer from Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. I was spoilt for choice!

Get yourself down to your local store – you will love the range on offer!
