Portals offer fresh British produce delivery
Manama, January 22, 2014
UK-based supermarkets such as BritishCornerShop.co.uk (BCS) have now started to export locally grown British produce to selected European countries, a report said.
In the last few years online supermarkets have begun offering expats a home delivery service for their favourite foods from the UK, but up until the last year this has generally been restricted to ambient products such as Bisto Gravy and Marmite.
Jo Parker, procurement manager at BCS said: “Initially our service was simply to help Brits abroad enjoy things like, a cup of Tetley Tea in the morning, or a bowl of Heinz Tomato Soup for lunch, but we now also offer a range of chilled products, giving our customers the opportunity to support not only local producers but also the British economy.
“So far eight European countries can order in British fruit, vegetables, meats and cheeses from brands such as John Thorner’s, Bernard Matthews and Covent Garden, as well as local producers like Somerset Camembert.” – TradeArabia News Service
