"We are once again privileged and proud to be supporting and judging the Farm Shop & Deli Product Awards 2024! The Product Awards are not only about the taste of a product but the complete overall look, feel, labelling and price point. Meaning all feedback given can be invaluable and a great tool for producers to take forward."

Kitchen Food Company was created during the Pandemic, proving that great things can happen even from bad situations. With the skills and knowledge of our team, we transformed from The Oxford kitchen, a Michelin Star and AA 3 Rosette restaurant into Two One Five Kitchen & Drinks, a contemporary, relaxed bistro and home dining. Towards the end of the pandemic the wheels were in motion to convert 215 into The Kitchen Food Company. This would bring the first Fine Food Delicatessen to the streets of Summertown, whilst keeping the bistro option for our long-standing customers who have enjoyed eating in with us.

"The Farm Shop and Deli Awards are the cream of the crop when it comes to their expertise in highlighting and selecting the very best products in the independent sector. The knowledge and skillset of the team is outstanding, and really helps find and help new products and suppliers in creating a foothold and generating sales for Great British products."
