Calling all local artisan brands...
We love to work with like-minded brands and are launching a new programme to increase the amount of local artisan food products that we stock at Applegarth.

We want to meet you...
Why not come and have a cuppa and pitch your product to us? You'll be given the opportunity to meet our retail team and tell us all about your product and what makes it great.

Get in touch...
If you would like to work with us then please contact Eleanor our Retail Manager by emailing Make sure you consider the factors that we have laid out below when you present to our buying team. We are very keen to stock products that have not been listed in supermarkets and are currently looking at our shelves to remove products that have moved into this retail space.

What do we mean by local?
We know that there are an abundance of small artisan businesses out there – so many that it's hard for us to find you all. Whether you're on our doorstep or 50 miles away, we welcome producers from further afield who can offer something truly unique, exciting & complimentary to our brand.

Preparing for our chat
We're one big happy family at Applegarth and like to keep things relatively informal and relaxed. Please come prepared with a short pitch about your product(s) which should be followed by a tasting session. If you need access to additional equipment then please let us know ahead.

What are we looking for?
We are keen to see as many different products as possible from the South East. fresh & cured meats, antipasti, dairy produce, baked goods, confectionary, biscuits, charcuterie, alcoholic & non-alcoholic beverages are just some of the items we stock from local companies but there is room for more. If your product tastes great & stands head-and-shoulders above the crowd, then we want to see it and meet you!
