3663’s local supply

3663 is expanding its scheme to provide locally sourced foods, with the launch of a range of south-west regional products from its Lee Mill and Plymouth depots.

Julie Moore, 3663 marketing controller, explained: “Chefs prefer to use local ingredients, but it has always been hard to make this a financially viable option.”

The range consists of more than 200 short and long-life chilled, frozen and ambient products from local south-west suppliers, including Lynher Dairies Cheese Company, Dartmouth Smokehouse, Kelly’s of Cornwall and Marshfield Bakery.

3663 has been working together in partnership with Taylors Regional Foods, which is using its hub depot in Exeter, and will eventually serve all 3663 depots in the south-west region.
