With the holiday season upon us, we are taking time to reflect on this past year and share our gratitude for your continued support. We are excited to tell you about leasing opportunities at The Food Exchange and tell you about everything our community is celebrating and working on.

​What's old... A look back at 2020​

At the Food Exchange, we strive to support our members at every stage of their journey, enhancing their potential and giving a home to our community of more than 500 food and beverage professionals.

This year, as the world has wrestled with the impacts of the pandemic, we remain committed to ensuring that being part of the Food Exchange and New Covent Garden Market makes a difference; here are just some ways we have supported our community this year:

  • Built a dedicated home delivery shopping webpage for our members to join
  • Launched a campaign for British Food Fortnight
  • Lobbied for business rates concessions for our tenants
  • Welcomed the fit out of Mission Kitchen 
  • Partnered with London Waste and Recycling Board, Soil Association, City Harvest, London South Bank University, London Agri-Food Innovation Clinic, Westminster Kingsway College.
  • Promoted online webinars and events through Wandsworth Enterprise Hub
  • Created and shared content created by our community for the community

...and what's new. A look to the future

As the year comes to an end we’ve been thinking about making the world a little better in 2021. For an upcoming edition of our newsletter, we want to hear from YOU! Email us a few lines or a 60 second voice memo to hello@cgma.co.uk to tell us how you’re planning to make the world a little better in 2021. We’ll share the messages that inspire us most — and we might even follow up with you to learn more!

Community Spotlight

12 Days of Christmas

Every day for 12 days this month, we promoted some of our members' wonderful products and services and some charitable initiatives too. If you're looking for seasonal gifts, make sure you check out our Instagram at @foodexchangeldn and our blog post about the 12 Days of Christmas.

Mission Meals

Mission Meals, an initiative launched by Mission Kitchen, have helped 14 food businesses survive the pandemic, delivering 21,000 meals to people in need. Last week they've delivered 5,500 meals intended to give vulnerable families a degree of food security over the Christmas period. All meals were cooked by small businesses in need of support. Mission Meals initiative helped small businesses survive and fight hunger during Covid-19.

A thank you

Until then, we wish you all the best!
