Our producers

In this section

Our unique relationship with our supplier partners is key to the success of Sourced Locally. We’re fortunate to work with over 100 producers from across Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex, supplying our stores with everything from fruit and vegetables, jams and chutneys, to meats, fish, pies, fruit juices, wines and even locally-produced cleaning products and charcoal.

We try to stock produce that is grown or produced locally to keep our food miles down, so our range changes from store to store. Listed below are just a small selection of our producers.
