Manchester Veg People
Manchester Veg People is something new. A co-operative of Greater Manchester organic growers and buyers working together to provide fresh, seasonal food of the highest possible quality, delivered to restaurants and catering establishments in Manchester.
Their growers, who also supply us here at Unicorn, produce some of the best ingredients you'll find. They then ensure that this great food gets to the eater with the minimum fuss and packaging, in the shortest time, to ensure it's still at it's best.
They have developed a model where produce is sold based on the actual cost of production rather than fluctuating market prices, meaning talented growers are rewarded with a fair price for their labour.
If you are involved with a restaurant, catering, or public sector procurement, you can become a member of Manchester Veg People and be involved in the running of the business as well as buying the freshest, fairest, most sustainably produced food in the Manchester area.They also have marketing materials for your outlet which can help you with getting the message across to your customers about why your veg is different, completing the circle from the farm to the end consumer.
Have a look at this recent film which explains a bit more about how Veg People works.
