Food Technology & Management Capability

Dynamic Food Procurement has the potential to be a transformational force for good. That's why we have built the world's first tech platform to bring it to life across every sector and chain contributor in the food industry.

​EM is the technology platform proven to transform conventional procurement approaches by enabling SME inclusive food procurement, fulfilment, consolidation and delivery along short, transparent, supply chains.

By enabling the public and private sector to procure food direct from SME primary producers and secondary suppliers, caterers can build back better and reduce costs.

Short, transparent supply chains are an essential prerequisite for making informed choices when procuring food. The time has come to change your food supply for good.

Our ambition is that by 2026, 50% of public money spent on food and drink in the South West will be spent directly with small and medium sized producers based in the region.

To achieve this, we are working with the government’s Crown Commercial Service to deliver the Future Food Framework, which is a new dynamic approach to public sector food procurement that will help small and medium sized producers in the region to sell directly to public sector institutions.

The South West Food Hub is supporting the region’s food network to buy local and establish shorter and more sustainable supply chains. We work across the South West’s food sector, focusing primarily on public procurement.

Passion For Pie was founded in July 2017 when owner Jason Winser lost his job and was struggling to find employment, his wife Karen and Daughter jean bought him a gift voucher for Exeter Cookery School and he attended the Pastry Course to take some time out from the stresses and strains of finding employment.

After attending the course Jason made a Pie for a friend who said “I would have paid you for that!” that got Jason thinking about if he could sell them.

He set about organising a market stall in Newton Abbot and produced his first small batch of pies.

The Business began as a home baker and we moved into our first Commercial Premises in September 2019.

Karen left her employed position and joined Jason Full-time to deal with the extra demand.

Since then the business has grown from strength to Strength winning numerous British Pie Awards including 3 Class Champions & Highly Commended Awards and a Hat full of Gold & silver Awards.

We sell our Pies via Markets & Food Festivals, Our Online Shop, Local Deliveries and Wholesale.

Down Farm is a social enterprise. We are an organic market garden and community hub situated just outside of Winkleigh, North Devon. We grow fantastic vegetables, salads, herbs & fruits, using only hand tools. Our aim is to grow produce that benefits us, our wildlife the soil and our community. ​

We grow using the "no-dig" method meaning we do not invert the soil. We preserve the soil structure by adding compost every year to the top of our growing beds, helping the soil life flourish. A happy soil lets us grow produce that is full of goodness and bags of flavour. ​

Our food is for our community. All our produce is eaten within a 30 mile radius of the farm. We invite our community to be a part of the farm, joining us for events and volunteering at the farm. Keep an eye on our events page for this year's happenings.
