92. Local Food Company

Luxury food hampers and products

Founders: S and D Rooney
Website: www.thelocalfoodcompany.co.uk

The pair recently sold the company but started it while they were both still working full-time, sometimes processing orders and filling hampers at all hours of the night. It was a proud moment for the company, which sources food produced in the Devon area, when they were presented with the Startups Awards green business of year accolade in 2007. Tourists, locals and corporate clients alike have grown fond of the luxury hampers, which support local producers and offer a welcome alternative to the region’s supermarkets.
