SUSTAINABILITY

DeGusta champions local producers. We stock a wide range of food and drink that is made right here in Bristol and the surrounding areas. You will find dairy, meat, beer, coffee, eggs, gin and more that has come from local producers we know and trust in our ever-expanding range. We actively seek out suppliers that also care about the environment and play a vital role in reducing their carbon footprint and supporting local communities. 

What we can't, or don't produce in the UK, we import. Our exquisite Spanish imports are based on deals made directly with farmers and producers on their turf, and in their language (after allowing them to explain their farming systems and sampling their produce). So, we don’t have a ‘supply chain’; they call us, and we call them and that’s how it should be. 

 

We don’t use air freight: our produce arrives by sea (or road where unavoidable) reducing our carbon footprint. For some produce, plastic free is currently unavailable; but as a company we strive to avoid single use plastic in all areas and actively seek out suppliers that do the same.
