About Us

What is Buy-From Shropshire? 

Buy-From Shropshire champions food and drink provenance in Shropshire. 


How? 

It is the hub for everything food and drink in Shropshire. Discover food and drink producers and the heroes who sell or serve their products. 


Buy-From Shropshire is a dynamic network that champions independent food and drink businesses in the county. By being part of the network, members have their own presence on the website, marketing and promotion on social media, blogs about their business as well as support through 1-2-1 clinics, workshops and network meetings. This support covers anything from sales and marketing training to website analysis and specific business growth support. Buy-From Shropshire continually works to create amazing retail opportunities for our network, whether that be through festivals, trade shows or through direct links to retailers, wholesalers and tourist attractions.

The Shropshire Food and Drink Hub

The Food and Drink Hub is a collaborative venture led by Buy-From Shropshire that brings together local Food and Drink producers. Uniquely, the Hub members work together and support each other to promote their businesses and their ethos locally and nationally, showcasing some of the finest local products to retailers, buyers and the public.  


The Food and Drink Hub has 13 members to date, all of whom benefit from a shared database of retail outlets, an online closed forum, a collaborative brochure and shared distribution.


So far the Food and Drink Hub has experienced great success since launching at the 2018 Ludlow Food Festival. Members have benefitted from the distribution of the Hub brochure – gaining new stockists and new retail outlets and increased orders from customers. The Hub now has exclusive discount from the Happerley Food Provenance scheme to support their businesses and has been asked to be guests at Borough Market.
