The Better Food Company, Bristol
No dairy here!
Bank Holiday Treats!
The Better Food Company's tag-line is 'The best organic and local food comes to Bristol'.
Us Bristolians certainly have it good.
I'd expected fresh bread, organic fruit and veg, local ales and ciders and a cafe offering homemade cakes and veggie delights. I was not expecting the abundance of gluten free, egg free, dairy free and vegan products in the chiller. Or the racks of free from goods from many familiar brands and a few rarer brands.
You'll find obscure cooking ingredients (almond butter, coconut sugar, millet flour etc - I found powdered almond milk!!) here and a comfy place for a dairy free mocha and a slice of cake.

The St Werburghs shop is next to a fantastic arts and crafts shop and nearby you'll find St Werburghs City Farm and a fascinating 'village' The Yard, the result of a sustainable house building project. Relax in The Farm pub garden afterwards with a refreshing cider and see the work of local artists at the same time. It's a full day out if you are thinking of visiting this little part of the world!
The Better Food Company can also be found on Whiteladies Road, Bristol. Here you'll find a shop, a deli counter and a small cafe, selling GF, DF, vegan goods but on a smaller scale. (GF beer available in both shops! Grab a bottle from the Whiteladies shop and quaff it on The Downs this summer.)
