The Spirit of Christmas
Thursday 1st December, 6.30pm – 9pm
Enjoy the festivities at The Food Company’s Spirit of Christmas event. Come and sample the very best from our seasonal suppliers and start your Christmas shopping in style.
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.
Agapey Chocolate Collection
We are the proud exclusive UK suppliers of Agapey Chocolate! The luxuriously rich dark chocolate is made with all natural ingredients made in the traditional way with added touches of modern technology for the best chocolate available.
