The popular BoroughBox brand, which began life in the summer of 2014 with a simple mantra of ‘bringing the market to your door’, has unveiled an exciting new product for January 2016 with the launch of their curated Discovery Club. Hand selecting produce from across the UK’s thriving independent food market, the club provides a new way to sample, savour and discover food, drink and specialist items from artisan producers & market traders that you simply wouldn’t stumble across on a daily basis. Subscribers to the Discovery Club will receive a monthly box of food and drink items, along with product notes and comments from the team, which includes a wellbeing specialist from the City of London.
“BoroughBox want to make it easier for people across the UK to taste the impressive and diverse food scene that is exploding around the country” said BoroughBox’s founder and CEO, Andy Lawson. “And in turn we want to give these hard working, dedicated producers and traders a vessel and platform to help their products reach more consumers each month. We have an incredible range of food markets in the UK, from the likes of Borough Market and Broadway Market in London, to regional farmers markets, food fairs, events and country shows. The produce available at these locations, on the given days they trade, beats anything you can get from a supermarket - but of course no-one can visit them all. And I know first hand as a market trader myself what effect the British weather can have on visitors, footfall, and ultimately sales of the product you’ve put your heart and soul into. The BoroughBox.com website was built as an online marketplace through which any trader, big or small, could take a pitch to sell their products. And now with our new Discovery Club we’ll be hand selecting items from our own marketplace, and markets across the country, to deliver them right to our subscribers door.”
With the Discovery Club also set to feature specialists oils and condiments, which can be used to have a positive effect on health, our renowned wellbeing expert Dr Deborah Quinn will be enjoying co-curating, commenting and advising our subscribers on ways to use them in your kitchen. With an impressive CV of being a qualified Medical Doctor, with a First Class Honours Degree in Physiology, a Diploma in Nutrition and a Diploma in Nutritional Medicine, Deborah uses all of her training and experience to help improve the health, energy, weight, fitness and lives of all her clients and she’d like to pass on some of this expertise through BoroughBox. Over time Deborah’s advice can help you build your knowledge and discover exciting products and sustained wellness.
The BoroughBox Discovery Club will carry a different theme each month, celebrating areas of the UK to seasonal gluts. The inaugural box dispatching late January 2016, will feature products from Borough Market to showcase everything close to our founders heart. “Borough is an area of London synonymous with incredible food & culture”, Andy comments, “From the world famous Borough Market, to the hustle and bustle of the South Bank featuring sizzling street food and specialist producers. BoroughBox has its origins deeply rooted in this foodie haven and is a destination for anybody passionate about the quality and source of the food they eat and cook with. Let the journey begin”.
