Our buying + transport policy

Locavore exists to help build a fairer and more sustainable food system which is better for people and planet. We aim to do this primarily through selling and producing food in ways which are socially and environmentally useful, and by providing the market for other producers to do the same.

We aim to build our market so that we can shape the food system positively through directing the spending of our customers to producers who share our ethos.

With this in mind we want to ensure that we deal with businesses and people who share our values as much as possible.
