There’s a growing army of local Artisan Food and Drink Producers in the UK, producing a huge variety of fabulous tasting locally produced foods.  The range of these local foods may be diverse, but the one thing they all have in common is the love and passion they put into their products.

A lot of these Artisan Food Producers start with a passion for making something for their friends and family which grows as everyone tells them how fabulous it is.  Some then take it to the next level and make to sell at Farmers Markets, or in local shops.

Most Artisan food producers will continue to make their food and drink products in small batches.  This gives them an amazing ability to try new flavours and bring new products to market.  Most of these Artisan Producers are either out in the cold at Artisan Markets, or doing their own deliveries to local Farm Shops and Delis.  This means they get feedback about their flavours and products and can continually improve and innovate.

The love and passion which goes into these locally produced Artisan Products means the quality of the ingredients that goes into them is really important.  Many will source their ingredients locally, and some will even grown the ingredients themselves.

When you buy local from local food producers, you are supporting a small business and supporting the local economy. As well as tasting fantastic, these locally produced foods help to reduce food miles and support local farmers.
