Since its launch in April 2006 Purely Cornish Deli in Looe and has established itself as the place to find an outstanding range of locally produced goodies with over a hundred different lines from Cornwall.
Andy Parritt and Ally Martin the owners have ensured a policy of supporting the small Cornish producer and try not to purchase from suppliers who sell to supermarkets. Situated in the 16th Century bakery in Looe the deli has a wonderful smell of cheese and olives with low oak beams and the original clome bread oven made into a feature of the shop. As added incentive to buy local there is a Food Miles loyalty card where the distance the produce has travelled to get to the shop has been calculated and customers are rewarded with points toward a discount; the closer to the deli the more points can be earned.
Andy and Ally have also expanded the business with a Farmshop Deli and Café at St Martin-by Looe. You can expect to find chutneys, jams, pickles, crisps, biscuits, a wide selection of cheeses, meats, ciders and wines and ‘Grandads’ famous locally grown vegetables and plants. Purely Cornish has a thriving online sales website where you can ‘pick your own’ produce which are then lovingly prepared into wonderful hampers and posted with your special greeting.
