SSDC Food and Drink Directory

More than 100 local businesses have already signed up to be part of our online directory of food and drink businesses during the Covid 19 period.

It will list producers who are growing and processing local food and drink, and independent retailers who sell local food.

Local producers, bakers, butchers, pizza makers, farm shops are among the suppliers offering an extraordinarily huge variety of produce as they continue to safely operate at this time.

We’re encouraging as many businesses as possible to get involved. If we’ve missed you and you wish to be included, please complete the survey below as the guides will be continually updated during the pandemic.
