Ooooby is helping to rebuild local food economies

We believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.

About Ooooby Hampshire

We are on a mission to put small-scale sustainable farming back at the heart of the food system we all depend on.

Everything we do is shaped by our values: Community; Kindness; Nourishment; Compassion; Transparency; Resilience; Co-operation.

Founders, Seb Mayfield and Debbie Lockett, have been at the forefront of the sustainable food movement for several years.

We have established Ooooby to make it simple for local people to buy from wonderful local growers and producers.

In-keeping with our values, we accept Healthy Start Vouchers and offer discounts to NHS workers.

We also direct a percentage of our profits to our sister company, Ooooby Winchester CIC, a not-for-profit social enterprise aimed at increasing access to local, nutritious food for families on low incomes.

Fair prices for farmers and artisan food producers is vital

We pay our suppliers at least 50% of the retail value for any products we buy in, and when dealing with wholesalers, we check to make sure they pay fair prices to their growers.

The benefits of buying local

Local food supports local economies. Food grown in the local community supports local jobs and encourages variety in our diets. It also requires less transportation, so it's fresher and has a smaller environmental footprint.
