Further to the recent unauthorised post, now removed, we sadly confirm that we are proposing to close our store at Marks Tey after 17 happy years.
The multiple pressures faced by the retail industry are making it increasingly difficult for us to trade successfully.
We are entering a period of consultation with our employees and may experience staff shortages during this period however, we are still open for business and look forward to seeing you again.
Many items across the store have been discounted so please come and view what is on offer.
We would like to express our sincere thanks for your past and continuing support of our store and for the many heart-warming and appreciative comments that have been posted.
Founded in the year 2000, The Food Company continues to be the destination for fine food and groceries in Essex.
Noticing the disappearance of established and much loved independent butchers, fishmongers and bakers from our high streets, we set up The Food Co as a food lover’s heaven. What’s important to us is that our customers are able to buy really fresh, good quality food locally, and we pride ourselves on having the very highest quality and widest choice of fresh food and fine groceries available.
In addition to our butchery, fishmonger, greengrocery, chefs counter, delicatessen, chocolate, wine, and pantry departments, we have an unrivalled range of luxury home wares and designer furniture upstairs in our gifts and homewares department featuring labels and designs difficult if not impossible to get without travelling into central London.
We’re proud winners of the Essex Life Fine Food and Drink award for Retailer of the Year™ 2011 and also The Great Taste Shop of the Year 2013 both of which are recognition for all the hard work that all the team put in to offer a unique shopping experience for our customers.
At The Food Company have some great events throughout the year. Held in our stylish restaurant, join us for Quiz Night Suppers, Steak & Seafood Nights, Tequila Tastings and much more.
