WHERE TO BUY LOCAL DURING THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK
In these uncertain times, supporting local communities has never been more important. There is clearly a renewed focus on our local food and drink producers, farm shops and markets.
Market research recently released by the FreeRange Dairy Network (March 2020) revealed that 55% of consumers in the region are currently buying food from local suppliers, following growing concern about food security due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Some 78% said they were now ‘more aware of the role local food plays in keeping us healthy’, and 66% indicated they would continue to buy local produce once the pandemic dies down.
Many Cotswold Taste members are already providing home delivery services and online sales channels. Buy local, support local producers and keep the Cotswold economy strong.
