Sussex Six

Graphic saying Join the Local Food and Drink Campaign, Sussex Six

Sussex Six is a new campaign encouraging local shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés to stock more locally-sourced produce and shout about it! The campaign is also about enabling local producers to develop their skills in selling to local businesses.

Businesses who join Sussex Six and pledge to take on just six new locally-sourced products, will benefit from:

  • Free publicity as part of a major two-year campaign including features in local media, websites and social media
  • Building relationships with new, local suppliers
  • Improving sustainability credentials by reducing food miles
  • Attracting new customers
  • Supporting a vibrant food and drink sector in Horsham District and wider Sussex

  1. Submit your Sussex Six Pledge online
  2. Producers and suppliers – adopt our Sussex Six branding and be more proactive in selling locally business to business
  3. Hospitality businesses – commit to taking on six new Sussex products on your shelves or menus

The Sussex Six campaign is the result of the Plate Up Local initiative commissioned by Horsham District Council, managed by Natural Partnerships CIC and part-funded by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. The 'Sussex Six’ concept was created by Nick Hempleman, founder of The Sussex Produce Company.
