What a mind-bogglingly brilliant idea The People’s Supermarket is. If I lived in central London I would become a member. Like a shot.
The People’s Supermarket Mission statement:
Our vision is to create a commercially sustainable, social enterprise that achieves its growth and profitability targets whilst operating within values based on community development and cohesion. Our intent is to offer an alternative food buying network, by connecting an urban community with the local farming community.
Somebody had to do something about the big supermarkets who are taking over our lives in ever more subtle and insidious ways, and in my view The People’s Supermarket are right up there at the forefront of the battle. I only hope they manage to keep the dream alive.
Now, if only they’d open a branch in Hastings!
