Hunt’s Foodservice is getting into the festival spirit as Glastonbury’s supplier of frozen, chilled and ambient food to [festival site]Worthy Farm’s caterers for the third year running.
Festival founder, Michael Eavis is committed to buying local where possible and shares Hunt’s ethos of supportiing farmers and producers across the West Country. From West Country Beef to Somerset Cheddars and Dorset Clotted Cream, Hunt’s supplies a variety of local, fresh and frozen produce along with household brands. The wholesaler says its partnership with Glastonbury Festival will help it to support West Country communities and reduce their carbon footprint with minimal food miles.
The fifth generation family wholesaler will be onsite throughout the week with a dedicated team and stock holding to manage the festival demand. Hunt’s nearby cold store at its Sherborne, Dorset HQ will also be on hand to satisfy any specific needs.
Hunt’s managing director Richard Hunt said: “We have been serving the West Country for over 60 years and have the local, family values that reflect the message of Glastonbury Festival. I am delighted to be working with Michael Eavis again, supplying our goods to the thousands of people who will be at the festival. Working with an event like Glastonbury Festival demonstrates our industry expertise and capability to satisfy demands of large scale operations.”
Hunt’s HQ houses more than 6000 product lines in a 1.5million cubic feet cold store facility. It delivers from Land’s End to Brighton and Swansea to Oxford via a fleet of 80 temperature controlled HGVs.
