Twelve local beer, cider and ale producers are toasting their success after securing listings with a major retailer in Buckinghamshire this month - and a popular Milton Keynes quencher is among the successes.
The Midcounties Co-operative Food, which operates nine stores in Buckinghamshire, is throwing its support behind local suppliers by offering more than 35 new products, and the new local beers, ciders and ales range includes the Concrete Cow Brewery in Milton Keynes.
The new products are part of Midcounties’ ‘Best of Our Counties’ range, which offers food and drink products from local Buckinghamshire producers.
Tom Jenkinson, head brewer at Chiltern Brewery, said: “We’ve been working closely with The Midcounties Co-operative’s local food team who have been very supportive in helping us to introduce our products to more people in Buckinghamshire.
“Four of our award-winning beers are now listed in The Midcounties Co-operative stores, and we’re really proud to see them on the shelves of a respected high street retailer that really supports a lot of producers in the region.”
Matt Fletcher, direct sourcing manager at The Midcounties Co-operative Food, said: “We’re committed to supporting local suppliers who make fantastic food and drink products that we know people in the community will love. By investing in our ‘Best of Our Counties’ range we can showcase all the great products made locally in Buckinghamshire.”
