The Larder Group are one of the UKs foremost online retail service providers for the craft, artisan and local independent sector. Their vision is to ‘level the retail playing field’, providing access to world-class online services and technology that will enable SME producers and independent retailers to operate toe-to-toe with the largest of online retailers. This can be via a direct to consumer model, or local and national retail but with short supply chains, allowing a significantly higher percentage of revenue to be passed back to the producer.

Collaborative, Community

Together we are Stronger

Each marketplace is built with co-operation in mind. Uniquely, there is no withholding period and payment is immediate, at very low rates. Marketing and promotional services are built in; you can even embed in our own Google Analytics to track (anonymised!) customer interaction with your pages and products.

The Larder Group marketplaces and services all run on Amazon Web Services, designed with scalability and security in mind. All customer and seller data is GDPR compliant, all encrypted at rest and also in transit to bank level security. We do not store any card or financial data, as we use specialist services by Stripe as our payment processor.
