Many small food businesses have moved their trade online during the lockdown. Sustain has currated a (non-exhaustive) list of websites which host several independent food businesses selling their produce.
If you are a food organisation looking to sell your products online, we have collated some useful resources here
Here is a list of national directories, many of which have a map to help with area-based searches :
- Baker Direct – find a bakery who delivers to your door across England, Scotland and Wales
