We recognise that we are a new company and prospective customers may want to find out more about us or others may just be curious, so here's a little bit of information about what is BayDeliveries, how we want to operate, who we are and a tiny glimpse into what we are hoping to achieve.
What is BayDeliveries?
BayDeliveries is first and foremost an online grocery store. Think Sainsburys, Tesco or Ocado delivery.
The obvious difference is our range, we have a very strong focus on local food and drink and are bringing these fantastic products together under one roof. We believe this is tastier, fresher and has fewer food miles. It also provides a fair and scalable way for local food and drink manufacturers to find customers and critically will help Torbay, the South West and our Communities to prosper.
As a result, we are working with the active support of both the Torbay Development Agency and the Torbay Weekly.
We do not manufacture food or drink, nor farm or fish and are not a competitor in these spaces. In fact, if you are a local food or drink supplier, please get in touch! We are sure there are lots of small local suppliers and entrepreneurs making great products we don't yet know about and we would love to talk!
Buying local changes lives. It means we are paying a local supplier, creating jobs with them, incomes for more local families and a brighter future for the region.
In fact, for every £1 spent with a small or medium-sized business 63p stayed in the local economy, compared to 40p with a larger business.*
It also rewards our company which means local jobs and a reduction in the number of local people having to leave to find work.
How we want to operate?
We are a local company, will be working for local customers and with local suppliers. If we can offer customers what they want we will grow our and supplier businesses across the region and beyond and are already looking at expansion.
We will look to prioritise Torbay food and drink companies, then those based in Devon and the South West and then national brands. Some national brands can't be easily replaced but that doesn't mean we aren't looking!
We believe in this business and hope you will too!
Thanks for your support!
