OUR BRAND VALUES*

Best of Our Counties aims to source the tastiest food and drink from the counties we trade in. Whether that is through tenant farms, local suppliers or small food producers, we want to keep our supply chain as local as possible. Where we have Butchers, they only sell meat sourced direct from a local farm and ensure the finest, high quality cuts are available for our customers to enjoy with minimal impact to the environment. Our Delicatessens stock cheeses, freshly prepared pies, pastries, sausage rolls, scotch eggs, handmade ready meals, tarts & handmade pâtés all made by Best of Our Counties local suppliers. Our philosophy is simple: fresh, local, seasonal. We aim to source from the home or neighbouring county of each store. Inevitably it is sometimes necessary to go a little further to source food when demand is high & local sources cannot supply us, but we always aim to work with small, quality local producers. This not only reduces food miles but also means our customers know exactly where their food comes from, with peace of mind that it is of the highest quality and has been sustainably sourced. In store you will see our local ranges which are highlighted with “The Best of our Counties” branding.

Packaging & Waste

As you can imagine, producing numerous brochures creates waste. As part of The Midcounties Co-operative’s commitment to the environment we endeavour to recycle all our brochures and, wherever possible, send e-brochures to our customers to help reduce waste even further.
