Bonativo founder Christian Eggert came across Indie Farmer and my road trip adventure whilst researching his idea to launch an online farmers’ market in London. He got in touch and it didn’t take long to work out we both shared a passion for independent producers and great quality food.

Christian launched Bonativo in his home city of Berlin last month and invited me to join the team in London as co-founder. With a team of 7 (and growing) in London we launched www.bonativo.co.uk this Tuesday and our first orders were delivered to customers across  London yesterday.

As a farmer myself it’s a really amazing opportunity to help forward thinking farmers and foodmakers come together to reach a wider audience and grow their businesses online. The team and I will be working closely with each producer to really get to know the story behind each product, bringing you the true backstory of your food.

With a portfolio of nearly 50 independent farmers and foodmakers signed up already, offering over 500 food and drink products on the website and delivery to the door (across zones 1 & 2 and all south west postcodes) within 48 hours we were both really excited to launch in London this week. We would love to hear from new suppliers interesting in selling on our site and are also offering £10 off your first order with the following code INDIEF – we’d also really appreciate any feedback on the customer experience and the food itself!
