Enjoy.

A group of growers and producers from the West Midlands have teamed together to offer a fresh alternative to supermarket delivery services.

Increased public demand for local food has led the group, who come from Worcestershire and Warwickshire to launch their own home delivery service, and go beyond the direct sales that they currently offer through farm shops and farmer markets.

As well as targetting offices and small retailers, the scheme, run by Green Grocer Ltd Initiative also hopes to boost a Goverment campaign to encourage schools, hospitals and other public services to buy locally produced food.
