We understand local and sustainable food

We can help find sources of local, UK and fairly imported produce, and work with farmers and food businesses to raise standards along the supply chain. Provenance has experience of commercial production, wholesale, food service and retail, and of funded support and development organisations.

Provenance has extensive contacts with UK and European producers and producer groups, markets and food and farming organisations. We offer advice and support that meets the practical requirements of private, public and third sector food businesses and organisations.

Working with individual client businesses, we can assess the entire supply chain to identify and implement the necessary standards and practices for assured quality, increased sustainability and stronger trading relationships.
