Several members of the Cotswold Taste co-operative have acted quickly to reach more customers online during the coronavirus lockdown. Artisan producers like chocolate maker Costello+Hellerstein, charcuterie company SaltPig Curing and cheese specialist The Old Cheese Room have all set up or expanded their online shops to keep their businesses afloat after pandemic restrictions have wiped out selling at markets and wholesale.
Cotswold Taste’s executive chair Nick Waloff says supporting local food and drink producers has never been more important. “There is clearly a renewed focus on our local food and drink producers, farm shops and markets.” he said.
Cotswold Taste is posting a list of all its members offering online services on its website and its Twitter feed. For full details, visit www.cotswoldtaste.co.uk.
