London, 23rd July, 2010: There is increasing interest in
traditional, fine British foods from small producers. Supermarkets
dominate the market for food in Britain, but more and more people are
appreciating the value of using small companies that aim to produce
high quality food using artisan methods passed down between
generations. Forman and Field, a London-based mail order food company,
specialises in providing this kind of food.
Founded in 2002, Forman and Field aim to provide traditional foods from small
British suppliers in an 'online farmers' market'. Their suppliers all use high
quality ingredients and traditional recipes and methods. The company is part of H.
Forman and Son, a traditional salmon-smokers and supplier of smoked salmon, other
fish and seafood to some of the best restaurants and chefs in London. H. Forman and
Son is a family business in operation in East London since 1905.
Many people have an unfounded, poor view of British food, and Forman and Field seek
to rectify this. They provide a wide range of traditional foods, which would be
regarded by many as among the finest in the world. The company is committed to
ensuring that traditional methods of production survive. The salmon smoked by H.
Forman and Son is a good example, using their famous 'London Cure', a recipe
invented by Harry Forman, the company's founder, in 1905. Many of their suppliers
use similarly traditional methods to produce their products, and many have been
recognised by various awards.
Forman and Field also work to increase the profile of the fine British foods that
they sell. For the last two years, they have organised an open day during British
Food Fortnight in September. This has included guided tours of their premises,
tastings and a market. Their location opposite the new Olympic stadium means that
they are in an ideal position to support British sporting efforts in the 2012 Games.
They recently hosted a '1,000-day countdown dinner' in honour of the Games.
About Forman and Field: Forman and Field supply seasonal, gourmet British food,
which is made using fresh ingredients and traditional methods. They have a wide
selection of foods that can be used for any occasion, from a picnic hamper ideal for summer, to the ever-popular smoked salmon. Their website is easy to use and order
from, with products being delivered by courier.
