Tell us how Foodylicious began?
Foodylicious was set up in 2016 by to provide ease & convenience for customers to trial select quality food at shows and to buy on line from our web site, delivered direct to their door. After many years working with supermarkets & attending food shows it became obvious to us that many people had great frustration in finding fine food and drink as a whole range in their local stores.
How do you select the brands that you want to work with?
Foodylicious are very aware of its social responsibility. We choose our brands carefully – and always look for partners who adopt ethical practices and use sustainable packaging. For example, not only do Percol produce a really great tasting range but their catchphrase is “coffee on a mission” aiming to be the most sustainable coffee company – plastic free, carbon neutral and Fairtrade certified.
Do you have a favourite or best-selling product?
All the products available on our website are our favourites otherwise they wouldn’t make the cut. As for our best seller that’s our delicious tasting Percol coffee in their Nespresso compatible, fully compostible capsules. Choose from 3 flavours. But we’ve recently started working with The Ministers of Taste and sales are really picking up. These products are some of the nation’s favourite & great tasting heritage treats. They are of premium quality from some of the UK’s finest producers plus, as is so important to Foodylicious, they have recyclable packaging .
What can people expect when they find you at the Cheltenham Food and Drink Festival?
Foodylicious attend shows all around the UK to give customers a chance to try first hand the delicious products that are available to buy from our website.
