Run by the East of England Co-op, Sourced Locally Fortnight kicks off this Bank Holiday Monday, the 30th May. By championing locally-produced food and drink across East Anglia, the event will help to raise awareness about why it’s so important to keep it local, for businesses and consumers alike.
Hillfarm is a family-run business, and we rely on the support of our surrounding community to keep evolving and diversifying as a local producer. Here in Suffolk, an impressive 36% of people bought local produce in the last week – 11% more than the national average – and the benefits of this support are incredibly far reaching.

During Sourced Locally Fortnight, our Hillfarm intern Sophie will be touring the following Suffolk stores offering tasters of our produce as a thank you to our supportive customers.
If you see our stand, please say hello and help yourself to a sample of our cold-pressed rapeseed oil, mayonnaise and hand cream. If you’d like to buy, Sophie will be running a brilliant 25% discount promotion – so don’t miss out!
Throughout the fortnight, everyone involved in the event will be active on social media – so get in touch and use the hashtag #keepitlocal to show off all of your locally-produced goodies! You can follow us on Twitter @HillfarmOils and give us a like on Facebook.
As always, a huge thank you to all of our local customers for your support!
