Leading LPG supplier supports national business with local focus and passes on savings to customers
AvantiGas, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of LPG to off-grid properties, is taking its commitment to local communities one step further with the announcement of its latest partnership. The company, which supplies LPG to both homes and businesses in the UK, has recently joined up with BigBarn, the UK’s number one local food website, in a bid to support its mission to ensure consumers have easy access to locally grown food.
BigBarn supports local businesses by helping people find good quality and accountable food from local sources. Having worked across mostly rural communities in the UK since its inception, AvantiGas saw this as the perfect opportunity to support these key communities while promoting the idea of shopping local.
Speaking about the partnership, Phoebe Munday, Marketing Executive at AvantiGas, said, “We are incredibly excited to be working with BigBarn to help connect consumers to local producers. At AvantiGas, we’re all about supporting rural communities, and we believe that working closely with BigBarn will help promote the ‘think globally, act locally’ ethos that will continue preserving the rural landscape.”
The website has grown exponentially since its inception, and now hosts the details of 7,000 businesses, such as farmers’ markets, butchers, bakers, and farm shops across the UK. Allowing consumers to buy direct from suppliers online, or find details of local markets and shops where locally grown food can be purchased, it ensures producers receive a fair price for their goods and savings are passed on to consumers.
BigBarn is also on a mission to encourage children to get involved in growing their own produce. Having successfully worked with Woodstock Primary School in Leicester to encourage learning through growing vegetables, the team has started a petition to put food growing, cooking and nutrition at the core of the school curriculum.
Anthony Davison, founder of BigBarn, added, “We are incredibly excited to be working with the team at AvantiGas. As a company that really cares about rural communities, we’re looking forward to working together to spread the BigBarn message across the whole of the UK.”
