Organic food is doing well in the UK. Generally starting from small beginnings – one man’s idea, one woman’s kitchen table – and moving on to small offices and workshops, many of the UK’s leading organic brands are finding they are once again outgrowing their current premises.
Infinity Foods of Brighton, for example, have executed a move to a new, larger warehouse (without interrupting our supply of their entire range). Carley’s of Cornwall, the popular raw, organic nut and seed butter manufacturers, have bought and obtained planning permission for an old ochre and tin-mine, which they aim to transform into a zero-carbon, zero-waste factory, ready for use by mid-2014. And at Naturally Good Food, we too have found that we can (literally!) no longer squeeze any more boxes and staff into our little stable yard building.
So we’re off to pastures new – again, quite literally, as our new building is located in the middle of a field. There are many things we’ll be very sorry to leave behind – the chickens, for one! (Perhaps we could smuggle some out with us?) But it’s an exciting time too, and a great sign, that the range of organic, natural and gluten-free products we sell is really getting out to our customers. We’re very proud to be part of the ever-growing body of organic and natural retailers in the UK.
If you’re a previous customer of our shop, we’ll be happy to take your usual shop order (with the exception of chilled and frozen foods) and post it out with free delivery. See our Local shop page here, for full details.
We’ll be leaving Jason, the organic butcher, behind at Cotesbach (though it’s unlikely to be goodbye for long – his meat is too good to say goodbye to)! Visit www.jasonsorganicbutchers.co.uk or come and see him in the Stable Yard at Cotesbach in Leicestershire, to get an idea of what he has to offer.
You might also like to have a look at cotesbachschoolhouse.org.uk, which shows the exciting new developments at the Cotesbach Educational Trust, where our shop is located.
It’s clear that organic and natural food is important to you – and it’s vital to us. Here’s to the next stage of our journey!Tags: carleys, Cotesbach, Cotesbach Educational Trust, infinity, jason's butcher's shop, local shop, nut butters, seed butters
