LOCAL PRODUCE. LOCAL PEOPLE. LOCAL PRIDE.

What is a local hero?

The catcher of fish or an iconic dish.

A manufacturing giant, communities reliant. A butcher, a grower or ancient seed sower.

A blender of teas or iconic cheese. The artisan. The maker. The job creator.

Merchants, producers, large and small. They’re Local Heroes.

One and all.

PRODUCER SHOWCASE

The North East of England is home to some of the most talented, hard working food and drink heroes there are. We’re proud to be associated with them and it’s our aim to introduce as many people as possible to their work.

ADAM RILEY

Riley’s Fish Shack

“How did our tiny fish shack nestled in King Edward’s Bay, Tynemouth receive national recognition? Because our menu is based on whatever has been landed locally that day. Fresh lobster, hake, turbot, monkfish and oysters are all prepared on-site.”

ANDREW CALDER

Calder’s Kitchen

“I remember my grandfather making it when I was a child. Years later, after he’d passed away, we discovered his recipe so my wife and I decided to try making it. We shared the results and the feedback was great so we knew we were onto something.”

ELISE LANE

The Winery by Laneberg Wine

“Coming home to set up the first urban winery on Tyneside has been a dream come true. I’m one of the lucky ones who found their passion in life in winemaking and made it a reality. I’m so proud to share this with friends, family and the people of the North East.”

COPING IN A CRISIS

In one in a series of documentaries by Dan Prince, nationally-renowed North East grower Ken Holland explains how the COVID-19 crisis is affecting his business and how he is responding.

We want to share our passion for the region’s food and drink producers, brands and incredible chef talent. Our newsletter will bring you stories about our #LocalHeroesNE, celebrating our regional food culture through recipes curated by regional chefs, their food memories and inspiration for what you can cook up with the contents of your boxes.

A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OUR PARTNERS

Every box purchased on this site will have 10% added to it at checkout. This money will go to form a Community Fund that will help support people in need across the North East of England. More details on how this fund will be administered will be available soon. Until then any monies raised will go towards helping local people in crisis at the Newcastle West End Foodbank.
