To support local producers and to allow consumers access to local products we aim to set up a local food purchasing hub. This will be a virtual market place where producers can list their products allowing them to gain extra local business with a higher margin than they would get through other outlets.
Customers can browse the available products through the website and place their orders online in a conventional e-commerce manner which will be collated and be ready to pick up at the collection point on a weekly basis.
Orders can also be made at the collection point for those that do not have internet access and transactions will hopefully include payments in either pounds Sterling or the proposed Harborough pound.
There are many exciting ideas surrounding this project which will be based upon the successful Harborough buying group that we already run.
