Supporting British Farming

Here at Foodbuy, we’re passionate about supporting local and smaller suppliers up and down the country. Our network of farmers, growers and producers means we’re able to buy the best of British produce and provide a diverse range of homegrown products to our clients

Eating seasonal British produce is fantastic for a number of reasons. It makes financial sense because products that are in season are better value when the market has high levels of supply, fresh seasonal produce is packed full of nutrients so is good for your health and it’s always good to buy British to support our local economies.

Did you know…

  • In total we work with over 600 food and beverage small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)
  • Our supply chain uses 80% British products
  • We have a British-first sourcing policy on all fresh produce and we’re proud to have invested in many longer-term partnerships

Connecting with British farmers across our categories:

Meat and poultry

At Foodbuy, we champion British farming wherever possible and almost 90% of our fresh meat is sourced from UK & Ireland. 

Fruit and vegetables

We work with the best growers locally and nationally to source the highest quality products. This means our clients get to   enjoy a constant supply of sustainably sourced fresh produce of the highest quality.


We’ve been working with our dairy supplier, Yew Tree Dairy, for over a decade. They’re a great partner for us because they work with local farmers in and around North West England and Scotland. Every year they help us to provide our clients with more than 22 million litres of milk and cream. We’re proud that all of their supplying farms are Red Tractor Farm-Assured, which means milk comes from the healthiest and happiest cows straight to our clients.
