The way we all think about what we eat is changing. More than ever, customers want to know where food comes from and how it has been produced. The emergence of farmers’ markets, chic delis and specialist food shops, which offer quality, farm-fresh British food, are also playing a part in what customers are looking for in their food.
M&S customers in particular want great tasting food they can trust, which has been ethically sourced and carefully produced. We have always aimed to source quality ingredients and we’re proud of the relationships we have with our many dedicated producers and growers.
Being a 100% own brand label gives us a unique ability to control the quality of our food. We also have an unrivalled team of experts – Agronomists, Farmers, Chefs, Winemakers, Animal Welfare experts and even a Marine Technologist – to help source the best tasting foods which are produced to the highest standards. Our new range of speciality foods – from Smoked Wild Salmon from Alaska to Oisín Venison from the Finnebrogue estate and Greek Halkidiki olives from Mount Athos – all comes from people who truly care about their craft, whether it’s our experts who source our food, or producers who are passionate about the ingredients they use or grow.
