Promotional Business Feature: GFirst LEP - Made In Gloucestershire
Made in Gloucestershire – Meet the makers

Gloucestershire is lucky enough to be home to hundreds of outstanding local food and drink producers, who put their heart into everything that’s made in the county. There’s plenty to celebrate about Gloucestershire food and drink – that’s why Made in Gloucestershire was formed.

Made in Gloucestershire is a new initiative from GFirst LEP – Gloucestershire’s Local Enterprise Partnership, championing the county’s best food and drink producers and is backed by an impressive array of partner organisations.

David Owen, CEO of GFirst LEP said: “From globally recognised brands like Wall’s Ice Cream and Ribena to fast-growing start-ups like Tubby Tom’s and Non Solo Pasta, we want to show local people, visitors and the world everything that’s great about food and drink in Gloucestershire.

“Through the Made in Gloucestershire initiative, we want to champion our producers, increase local procurement, and encourage residents and tourists to buy local.

“When customers see the Made in Gloucestershire mark, they know that they’re supporting our diverse, world-leading community of producers and helping to put money back in the local economy, securing jobs and income.”

Tom Hughes, Founder of Tubby Tom’s said: “We’ve always had amazing support from local people from ever since we first started to now. To me, Made in Gloucestershire means home. It also means opportunities. We have so many hidden gems here, whether that’s events, street food, artisan makers and small businesses. The Made in Gloucestershire website means you can find these incredible businesses all in one place and support them.”
