About Us

Dedicated to organics

Locavore Trading is a social enterprise wholesaler of organic groceries to progressive independent retailers and caterers throughout the UK and Ireland.

We exist to create short, fair and sustainable supply chains that benefit producers while helping to give independent businesses the edge to compete with supermarkets and big businesses.

We do this by focusing our offer on affordable, good value products. We buy these in volumes that can be shipped and distributed as efficiently and directly as possible.

By doing this we hope to help independent organic retailers in the UK to offer people an alternative to conventional supermarket supply chains.

Dedicated to organics

We’re dedicated to organics and making environmentally and ethically sound choices in sources and transporting our products.
All of our lines are organic. We never use air freight and use sea freight for some of our biggest lines.

Locavore Trading is the wholesale wing of Locavore Community Interest Company. The social enterprise was set up in 2011 to help build more sustainable food economies. We do lots of different activities beyond Locavore Trading. These including running social projects, a grocery store, market gardens and veg box scheme. You can find out more on our other website: locavoregrocery.com.

Locavore Trading continues the work of the wholesaler Healthy Oils, which we acquired in January 2018. We had been a customer of the business for many years and and had a fantastic relationship with the owners who shared our values and vision of more sustainable food networks. When they decided to retire they invited us to take over the business which we were delighted to do.
