Giving back to our community
Here at Adelia Fine Foods, we understand the importance the local community are to our business. We love to learn, but equally love to share our journey and insights with those we believe could benefit. Sharing our mistakes, wins, stories and ideas with others has helped us build on these relationships with our community and create some amazing collaborations.

As well as donating any appropriate waste from our own production (e.g. offcuts and excess product), we are volunteering our staff to assist/support with food preparation and cooking of meals on a regular and rotating basis.
