The Midcounties Co-operative has put local produce at centre stage for its recently-acquired food store in Middleton Cheney, Northamptonshire.

The store, which re-opened October 22 on the High Street, offers an extended range including Co-op own brand products as well a range of 50 new locally-sourced products from suppliers in Gloucestershire, Warwickshire and Oxfordshire, including The Meat Joint, Fatherson Bakery, Mudwalls Farm and The Cotswold Pudding Company.

The store will also become part of The Midcounties Co-operative’s Regional Community in Banbury, which aims to create a lasting legacy in the region through fundraising, volunteering and promoting the importance of sustainability.

Luke Brown, manager of the store, said: “The arrival of The Midcounties Co-operative Food is good news for shoppers in Middleton Cheney, and with a wide range of new products, including many sourced from local suppliers, customers will be spoilt for choice when they visit the store.

“With the Middleton Cheney store joining the Midcounties Co-operative family, our colleagues can play a bigger role in our community than ever before. Our local Regional Communities programme supports a range of good causes and charities in and around Banbury, and we’re all looking forward to getting more involved in the coming months.”
