About Cotswold Taste

How It Works

Cotswold Taste is a member-owned, not for profit co-operative that provides vital advice, business, marketing and promotional support to its members, food chain producers and support businesses to help their resilience and business success.

It is able to draw upon a wealth of knowledge of land management, food and drink production, supply and retailing, and hospitality outlet management.

It is also looking to form relationships with major participants in the food and drink chain, who can help Cotswold Taste to secure market presence and achieve its objectives.  We work with FOOD FROM ENGLAND and TOO GOOD TO GO.  

Directors

Cotswold Taste has a Board of highly qualified individuals with wide-ranging experience in business operations and start-ups, the food and drink sectors, business training and consultancy, funding and management, and marketing, promotion and events.
