Five Mile Food has won £19k of funding from Defra and the Technology Strategy Board to research the feasibility of our logistics model and hence demonstrate that we can build a sustainable business delivering local food.

Defra’s announcement about the funding is at http://www.defra.gov.uk/news/2012/07/08/food-innovation (we’re the “digital project making buying local food more convenient and affordable online”).  The Grocer has also picked up news of our win, in the article at http://www.thegrocer.co.uk/winners-named-in-race-for-greener-food-funding/230706.article.
