This week I discovered a new website: Foodisan. Foodisan is a fantastic company that showcases a plethora of scrummy goodies that come from small, independent food producers. Such producers can’t always afford to give their products the marketing they deserve, especially on a limited budget and Foodisan gives them the opportunity to sell above and beyond farmer’s markets or local shops and makes their products accessible to the likes of you and I. Hurrah! So far they have 43 producer partners signed up and over 900 products on their live database which means one thing; my bank balance will shrink as my tummy grows…
One ingenuous idea they have developed and branded is their ‘tasting box’. You can buy a one off or subscribe. For £19.99 you will receive a box of 5/6 gorgeous products to tickle your taste buds and expand your repertoire of artisan foods. They also do a gift box, which I think is an excellent idea. When you think how much you pay to send someone flowers or suchlike, this makes a much better idea for a present. For a birthday, Father’s Day or even a corporate thank you, I think this would be a really classy and much enjoyed gift. Free delivery too. Bargain!
I was also very impressed with the style and ease of their website. A doddle to negotiate and with a very friendly feel. There is opportunity for you to recommend products too, which is great because so often independent producers rely on word of mouth – well now Foodisan can speak up for them too!
I have waxed lyrical long enough, but I do recommend you visit the site and see for yourselves. It’s like that posh deli down the road and a farmer’s market rolled into one and available in the comfort of your own home! Get drooling at www.foodisan.com. Enjoy!
