Our local supply partners have been carefully chosen for a number of reasons. They operate in the local area; they are independent, family owned and operated; they all care about what they produce and/or sell; and they have a vested personal interest in customer service and how they do business.
We choose our partners by meeting face to face, discussing how we will work together and support each other, now and in to the future.
We do everything we can to minimise waste and reduce our carbon footprint.
