How we choose our suppliers by surrounding ourselves with like-minded businesses

Here at Space with us we take sustainability and our environmental impact very seriously, and we expect nothing less from the suppliers that we choose.

 

Fortunately, we are surrounded by passionate local suppliers so we didn’t have to look too far to find great suppliers that share our passion for sustainability and fresh, high quality produce.

 

All of our fresh produce and meat comes from Sussex local suppliers such as Blakes for our meat and Munneries for fruit and vegetables.

 

Blakes is located in central Brighton and prides itself on sourcing organic, high-welfare meats from the UK and Ireland. We have had a great relationship with them for the past 8-years and have always been impressed by their positive attitude towards ethically sourced produce. In addition to that, they have supported the development of our apprenticeship chefs providing professional tuition in butchery to ensure that the meats are expertly prepared in our restaurants.

 

Munneries fruit and vegetables are based a short drive from the university in Chichester and provide our fresh fruit & vegetables. We work with Munneries to not only support our local businesses but also because they share our passion for reducing food waste. Any food that Munneries doesn’t believe is fit for sale is donated to local pig farmers and animal shelters to ensure that no food is disposed of unnecessarily.

 

Our coffee was chosen specifically for its triple certification and great taste. We use UCC to supply our specially chosen coffee bean that’s certified by fairtrade, the rainforest alliance and the soil association. Ensuring that the hard work that goes into farming the bean is protected and rewarded.

 

And finally, our favourite badge of honour is certified B-corporation companies, you’ll see some of these great products from the like of Brewdog, graze, vita coco and Judes icecream. We like B-corp companies for their focus on their social and environmental impact, not just their business profits!
