Our Ethics

We only stock food that's farmed and produced using the highest animal welfare and professional standards. Here in Wellington, on the Somerset and Devon borders, many of our producers are small and use traditional and sustainable methods.   

 Our Suppliers

We trade fairly with our suppliers, and treat them as we would like to be treated ourselves; sounds simple, and is simple.  We pay on time, pay market prices and place no restrictions upon any of our suppliers.  Our suppliers are key, and we value people and businesses individually.

We are members of the Guild of Fine Food Retailers, and they, like us, share a passion for sourcing the finest foods.

Our impact on the Enviroment

We are conscious of minimising our enviromenatl impact, and to this end select Food that is not over packaged and where resources are not wasted. It goes without saying we reduce, reuse and recyle everything possible.  We reuse supplier boxes wherever possible to reduce landfill and resource use.

Here at The Cheese and Wine Shop in Wellington, we believe in a fair deal for our customers, our suppliers, the environment, animals and indeed for ourselves.  This is what "ethical food" means to us. 

Expensive food is not always ethical but good food should never be cheap.  Beware if it is!  

Packaging Materials

All Hampers are packaged in attractive presentation boxes, and then in special Transite sleaves to protect them whilst in transit.

All Other items are carefully packaged, using recycled materials where possible, and dispatched in standard boxes, again, recycled where possible to ensure our, and your enviromental footprint, is as small as possible.
