Good Sixty has teamed up with eco delivery service Three Bags Full to bring its popular food delivery service to Bath. There are currently 12 top-notch independent retailers signed up, with more to be added to the site in coming months.
It’s a pretty slick operation that has won legions of fans in Bristol already, after launching there in 2016. Now, users in the neighbouring city will be able to view and pay for products from various retailers online, before booking a convenient time slot for delivery via zero-emission electric bike.
The service aims to help people support their local independent businesses and cut down on unnecessary food packaging, whilst providing a green delivery option. Its introduction into Bath is a timely one, with the city having been named one of 28 local authorities ordered by the government to reduce harmful levels of NO2 in the shortest possible time.
Bath independents that have signed up so far include Bertinet Bakery, Farside Coffee, Larkhall Butchers, The Italian Food Hall, Nibbles Cheese, Ma Cuisine and more, with the list set to grow in the coming months.
On the expansion, Good Sixty co-founder, Chris Edwards says, “I’m amazed by the amount of great independent shops and small-scale producers in Bath and I know many residents want to ‘shop local’ but simply don’t have the time to get to each separate shop or hunt out local, specialist producers. Good Sixty is the answer, allowing people to browse and buy from Bath’s best indies, at their convenience, in every sense of the word.
“And the service we provide is also an essential tool for small food businesses in this digital age, helping Bath’s retailers and producers share their passion, reach new customers and therefore compete with the ‘big guys’. Consumer demand for better, ethical, convenient food is at an all-time high and it has been proven time and again: shopping locally has a positive impact on our neighbourhoods, ploughing money back into the local economy and strengthening communities.”
