Since our launch in April last year, we've gained thousands of customers, received national press coverage and have been lucky enough to work with some of the most talented independent food and drink producers around. But we haven't even scratched the surface yet — the UK's ethical food and drink market is worth £9bn, and we're more than ready to expand our business to meet growing demand. So, we've launched a crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube to help us get there, and we'd love for you to be a part of it!
If you join our investment community, you'll be in good company. We've already received investment from the founders of MoneySupermarket.com, feelunique.com & Play.com!
How can I get involved?
You can invest as little as £10 or as much as you like - we have a selection of rewards available for various tiers of investment, and you will also be buying shares in the company! Click here to visit our Crowdcube page.
For a £10 investment, as well as becoming a part of our investor community, you'll receive a personalised discount code for 15% off products for you and your friends for 6 months.
For a £25 investment, you'll receive the same as the £10 tier, plus a lovely TheFoodMarket.com tote bag!
You'll receive the same as the £25 tier, plus a book filled with delicious recipes from our merchant community.
The same as the £50 tier, plus an invite to our investor party! Date TBC.
The same as £100 tier, plus an extension of the 15% discount for you and your friends to 12 months.
The same as £750 tier, plus a chocolate tasting workshop, with chocolate from our website, hosted by a chocolate expert! The team will be there too. Date TBC.
The same as £5,000 tier, plus an investor dinner with the founder and an artisan cheese and wine tasting evening (using our products) with the team, hosted by one of our merchants.
The same £7,000 tier, plus a deluxe hamper filled with food and drink selected for you by the team and an extension of the 15% discount to you for 3 years.
What is equity crowdfunding?
Equity crowdfunding is a process whereby people (i.e. 'the crowd') invest in a company in exchange for shares and, in our case, rewards! As a shareholder you will have partial ownership of the company, and stand to make a gain on your investment if the company does well.
Spread the word!
Please tell your food-loving friends, family and colleagues about our campaign. We'll extend any rewards to you if you do refer someone to us who goes on to invest (let us know about your referral at firstname.lastname@example.org).
