Durham Food Hub

The Durham Food Hub is an ambitious project arising from the aim in the Sustainable Local Food Strategy to create an infrastructure that will build a more efficient supply chain for local foods and thereby create a more favourable environment for the local food sector to flourish and expand.

Funding was received from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation in October 2016 and a Food Hub Manager appointed in January 2017. In the first year we have agreed contracts for a Distributor and Producers and set up a Trading Arm – Food Durham Trading Ltd, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of DCA.

The Food Hub works by introducing new suppliers and outlets to a distributor, and additional sales channels to suppliers. We offer a suite of business support, free for the first 12 months, to enable small businesses to be in a strong position to be able to supply the quality and quantity of products required.

The Food Hub was launched at the Food Durham Annual Gathering on 25th October 2017.
