72 Norfolk food and drink businesses who can deliver to your home
PUBLISHED: 19:00 30 March 2020
Lots of food and drink producers, shops and wholesalers are now offering click and collect and delivery services. Here are the ones we know about so far.
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Norfolk’s dedicated food and drink producers are helping to ensure that local people get the items that they need by offering home delivery services, no contact pick ups and more. And more now than ever our local producers need customers to support them too.
We will be updating this list regularly, so if you are a food or drink producer who is doing things a bit differently during the coronavirus outbreak, we’d love to hear from you. Email me.
Downham Market-based Accent Fresh is offering a home delivery service across East Anglia of a range of produce boxes including fruit, vegetables, milk, bread and cheese, which can be ordered online via accentfresh.co.uk.
Payment is by card or PayPal. The delivery will be left on the doorstep to minimise contact and a signature isn’t needed.
The order will be delivered within 2-3 days of ordering and if customers provide an email address or mobile number they will receive a message on the day their delivery should arrive.
Because of high levels of demand requests for deliveries on a specific day cannot be accepted. It is possible some items in the boxes might have to be substituted and they can’t accept requests for box items to be altered.
People who don’t have internet access can still place an order by calling 01366 386633 and leaving their name and number on the answering machine for a call back.
It is hoped that more products, including meat and toilet rolls, will be added to boxes soon.
