Producers of Good Goods
We work together with producers in the South West growing, manufacturing or producing food in an agroecological way, to sell their goods via our non-profit wholesale distribution network.
Looking for something different?
We want to help agroecological producers grow their businesses and markets, increase their production, and make sustainable, fresh produce available to more people.
GROWERS, FARMERS, MAKERS
If you’re in the South West and produce high quality, agroecological produce such as vegetables, fruit, herbs, meat, fish, dairy, eggs, breads, preserves, ferments, flours, animal feed or something else, get in touch. We have a lot of producers on board already, but we still have many mouths to feed and plenty of room to grow.
What’s agroecological? Find out here.
We understand that creating high quality, low impact produce takes time, resources and care. You should be rewarded for that. So you set your own prices reflecting the true value of produce.
The Good Food Loop charges customers a 10% fee to cover the costs of running the network.
SIMPLE, EFFICIENT SELLING
With the Good Food Loop, producers can sell to multiple, varied customers through one online platform, and the Loop distributes to them each week. This reduces the time and money producers have to spend actively selling and delivering produce, allowing more time for production, which is better for us all.
We use the Open Food Network, an innovative, open-source platform that allows producers to set up a profile and product catalogue. Produce can then be sold through multiple outlets, such as the Good Food Loop’s wholesale shop front and local online hubs such as Tamar Valley Food Hubs and In My Back Yard.
It’s free for producers to use through the Loop, and if you’re not already registered with Open Food Network, we’ll help you set up and get going.
Peak freshness, Zero waste
We collect and deliver produce on the same day, meaning it reaches customers at peak freshness. Customers finalise their orders the day before delivery, so produce can be harvested or prepared to order without the risk of wastage. Zero. None.
Reliable and resilient
We deliver year round*, getting your seasonal and sustainable produce to customers 51 weeks of the year.
By working directly with producers and customers, we’re shortening supply chains and keeping costs low. Together we are growing a network that’s strong and adaptable, plus we’re also able to return crates and reusable packaging each week.
*You’ll be glad to know, we’re closed between Christmas and New Year.
