We are something new. A co-operative of local organic growers and restaurants working together to provide fresh, seasonal food of the highest possible quality.
We supply produce to restaurants, caterers and public sector organisations in and around Greater Manchester. Most of our produce is grown within 50 miles of Manchester city centre on seven different farms and as far as possible is picked to order the day before delivery so it's really fresh and we cut down on waste.
Buyers and growers are working together as a co-op to help coordinate supply and demand locally and to ensure growers are paid a fair price for their produce. This is truly local produce at it's best.

MVP are looking for a new Worker Co-op Member. For more information and details about how to apply see the Jobs page.
An opportunity for public sector organisations:
The Kindling Trust and Manchester Veg People are looking public sector partners to pilot an exciting package that will enable you to incorporate fresh local healthy produce into meals, at a price supporting local growers – but coming within the costs of the current menus.
This is an exciting opportunity for schools, care homes or other public sector institutions to be one of the first to develop and start using a healthy and more sustainable menu, with support from an amazing group of experts - we are working in partnership with The Kindling Trust, Climate Friendly Foods and Cracking Good Food on this project.
We have been funded by the Ashden Trust to run pilots with three different organisations over the next year, so get in touch as soon as possible to let us know you want to be involved. Please download the document at the bottom of the page (below the photo) for full details of the project and how to apply.
