The name of a new foodhall and kitchen which is currently under construction at Saltford, transforming what were old farm structures into a new building, has been revealed.
Cotswold Fayre, the company behind the Flourish Foodhall & Kitchen at Glenavon Farm, wanted a name that reflected the ethos of the new venture, to be environmentally and socially responsible, in line with the company’s B Corp values.
Paul Hargreaves, CEO of Cotswold Fayre said: “We feel that the name Flourish perfectly encapsulates our aims for the new business.
“We are passionate about food and the positive impact it can have, for our customers that enjoy it, partners that produce it, the people we work with and the community in which we are a part.”
Examples of how this aim will manifest into day-to-day operations include a number of electric car charging points for customers, by working with Too Good to Go, an app allowing consumers to find, purchase and collect food, that may otherwise be wasted, products sourced from local producers and the aim that the foodhall will be as plastic-free as possible on launch.
Paul Castle, managing director, at Flourish Foodhall & Kitchen added: “We have lots of exciting plans to make Flourish a healthy contributor to the local community, our team and the planet.
“We want to make all our customers feel great when visiting Flourish and leave with a smile on their face.
“Working with local farmer, Adam Stratton, the construction programme is well underway and we anticipate opening our doors in Spring 2021.”
