When & Where
The Better Food Company
The Better Food Company are campaigners, as well as retailers of local, organic, ethical and fair trade products. We work tirelessly to make organic food more available to all, balancing the needs of the farmer and soil with the needs of our customers. Transparency in all we do is important to us, which means our customers can trust what we do and what we sell.
To celebrate the food we believe in, and as part of Bristol Food Connections Festival (1-11 May 2014), we're hosting three Food Journeys, taking you out to see where our food comes from and how it finds its way to market. Find out more on our website: www.betterfood.co.uk
