We are Plough to Plate, and here's what we do: whenever a shop or a chef needs the best West Country food and drink, we find it and take it to them; and whenever local producers need to get what they've made or grown into top notch shops and restaurants, we make that happen too. We're like a kind of local wholesaler, but we go above and beyond that.
We believe that our range of Cornish and West Country food and drink products is - at nearly 3000, currently – the most extensive you'll find anywhere. West Country food and drink isn't just our business, it's our passion, too. To bring top-quality local food to customers who care matters to us: it means money and jobs for small local businesses, shorter journeys for fresh food and drink, and a boost to the area's growing reputation for excellence in food.
We believe in working together in an ethical way. We like transparency all along the food chain and fair and sustainable pricing with no secret discounting. We aim to pay all our producers within 14 days of statement; in fact, the smaller they are, the quicker we pay! Our staff play a vital role. We train and develop them, empower them to make decisions, and try to make working life as flexible and jolly as we can. We try to be green in our working practices: climate-wise, not cabbage-like! Reducing food miles is the very point of Plough to Plate; and we reuse and recycle as much as possible. We even save all the stamps off envelopes and send them to the RSPB to help save the albatross.
Passionate, ethical, friendly, personable, knowledgeable, innovative-that's Plough to Plate. We might not get it bang on every day, but boy do we try!!
