How does a food group work?
Buying groups allow families, work colleagues, friends, neighbours or social organisations (e.g. Women’s Institutes) to club together and gain access to wholesome foods at wholesale prices. Our customers find ordering this way more convenient and cost-effective than regular trips to the supermarket.
Many people also find that organising or being part of a food group can be a rewarding social experience, bringing their community closer together.
The size of food groups varies largely with some comprising more than 10 families right down to single households. Often smaller groups will buy food in bulk every few months in order to save money on groceries. Food group buying provides a viable and sustainable alternative to supermarket shopping.
