It has taken us years to find a group of suppliers who share our values and ethics.
We want to work with other small independent producers where we know the money is going where it is deserved. It is important for us that all our suppliers share our quality standards as well as having the flexibility, experience and skill to adapt what they can offer.
We are extremely proud to be showcasing these extremely talented and hardworking small producers who put their heart and soul into the food they produce. Read a bit about some of them below.
Glenn from Rex Bakery
Glenn left his job in the City to pursue his passion to become an artisan baker. Starting off meticulously perfecting his sourdough recipe in his garage, Glenn now runs what we genuinely believe to be the best bakery in the UK. His deep passion and unwavering dedication to producing the best natural and organic bread has resulted in consistently outstanding bread which has won him countless prestigious awards.
Glenn is the modern version of an old fashioned baker, who cares deeply about what he sells, taking time to make bread properly and only putting into it exactly what’s needed. He's an inspiration.

'Chubby' from Plested Butchers
David aka 'Chubby' has run Plested butchers in Chinnor with his wife for over 30 years.
The beef we purchase from Chubby is reared on his own farm on our doorstep, we can pretty much wave to his cows! All Chubby's livestock is naturally fed to enjoy a good quality of life and they are treated with real care and respect.
He has won many awards for his herd and has even been presented an award by Princess Anne. We love his traditional, no nonsense approach to butchery and farming.
Claire from Natural Bread
Natural Bread was set-up by Claire and her late husband William, inspired by a shared love of food. Her passion lies in her quest to make bread as natural as possible with as few ingredients as necessary.
They use a slow fermentation technique, letting the sourdough starter do its job over 48 hours. They also roll and knead every single loaf by hand. Although this takes considerable skill and time, it creates an undeniably superior product.
Claire and her team are hardworking, reliable and love what they do.
Paul from Mundayville Design
We've had the pleasure of working with Paul from pretty much the beginning of ChilliDogs. His design expertise has helped us develop our brand to where it is now.
Paul has worked on delivering design concepts for a broad range of accounts including Orange, T-mobile, Domino’s Pizza, BP, Royal Opera House, Coca Cola, KFC, oh and little old ChilliDogs!
We feel very lucky to have Paul on our 'team'. His creative, patient and fun approach means he just nails it every time.
