The Cornish Food Box Company
Borne out of a desire to run their own business and do something good for the county they were born and brought up in, The Cornish Food Box Company is the brainchild of sisters Tor and Lucy.
Set up six years ago around Tor’s kitchen table, the business makes it really easy for people to buy Cornish food and drink and have it delivered to their door. Today they deliver all over the UK.
Specialising in all things fresh and Cornish, the company now delivers to hundreds of families and visitors across Cornwall, and further afield, with an increasing business of tailor made gift hampers as well as fresh grocery deliveries.
Based in one of Truro's oldest and most unusual buildings, The Cornish Food Box Company has grown into the area’s leading retailer of local food. In fact they are completely unique in the UK because they only sell food from a specific geographical area - this means you can truly trust where the food you are buying actually comes from.
Selling everything from fresh lobster and seafood, to the latest craft gins as well as seasonal vegetables, free range meat, bread, pasties, cheese and clotted cream teas, there is something for everyone. Everything is free range, grass fed and sustainable, and all the farmers, fishermen and suppliers are paid fairly for their produce.
The Cornish Food Box Company only sells food that comes from real people, people who care about what they are doing and food that the customer can truly trust.
The Cornish Food Box Company is really a desire to see small food businesses flourish by working together, and by making it really easy for the customer to support those small producers.
You can get involved by ordering your shopping online and having it delivered to your home, holiday cottage or even campsite, visiting their Truro store or popping into the cafe for a delicious lunch. There's a great kids area and well behaved dogs are very welcome.
There's also free superfast broadband available in the cafe and shop.
