Here in Chesterfield we’re very lucky to have a market featuring some fantastic local and regional producers as well as lots of other independent businesses throughout the town – just like us!

We’ve always been keen to support our local economy, it’s all part of our corporate culture, and one element of that ethos is to reduce our impact on the environment by ‘Buying Local’ and aiming to purchase products with little or no packaging.

Explains Shannan Pool-Gorman, compliance manager at Jones & Co: “Over the coming months, we’ll be showcasing some of our exceptional local businesses and suppliers.

“One our favourites has to be Ibbotson’s Fresh Quality Produce. The team is so friendly and passionate about their market stall and they really do pride themselves on offering the very freshest produce. Plus, there’s a chance to work towards zero waste as you can request no plastic packaging for your delicious fresh fruit and veg. Simply pick what you want and pop it in your shopping bag, easy!”

Concludes Shannan: “What’s more, the family-run firm delivers fresh fruit boxes to our office on Glumangate. This is just one way we can invest in the long-term health and well-being of the Jones & Co team AND back a fellow local business at the same time – it’s a win-win partnership!”
