At Thomas & Tate, partnerships with our supply chain work both ways. If we have learnt one thing from the past few years, cheapest does not mean best value.


In many instances, teams are often restricted by the finance department when it comes to purchasing decisions. However, at Thomas & Tate, Adam works closely with our chefs and suppliers to ensure we source fantastic produce for our chefs to use.


Quality and integrity are of utmost importance to us when it comes to our supply partners. We conduct thorough audits of all our suppliers to ensure that they uphold our non-negotiable Thomas & Tate standards and values.


We prioritise using local and small to medium-sized enterprise (SME) suppliers instead of large corporations (PLC) and national suppliers. This allows us to maintain a personal touch and source ingredients that are more environmentally friendly.


We are passionate about not only ‘doing the right thing’ but making it easier for our guests to make ‘planet-friendly' choices.
