Danbury Co-op Better Than Ever

Local and independent co-op society, Chelmsford Star, has just re-opened its convenience store on Main Road, Danbury following a brief closure for a major refit.

The Co-op has extended its commitment to back UK farmers by switching all of its fresh bacon and lamb to 100% British.

The new sourcing initiative will make the Co-op the only major UK food retailer to stock 100% own-brand fresh British beef, chicken, pork, lamb, bacon and turkey. It is already the only retailer to use British meat in all its chilled ready meals, pies and sandwiches.
