Kauai UK has the mission to open all its stores with the act of sourcing with suppliers that are as local as possible and those that we know and trust.
What do we source from Urban Grocer?
About our supplier Urban Grocer:
They are a family run business whose roots in the industry began way back in 1946 when their family started its journey into wholesaling fresh fruit and vegetables in Scotland #welovelocal
We've gone through a lot of cups of coffee finding the cleanest beans, sourced to be farmer-friendly and guaranteed organic.
What do we source from Union Roast?
About our coffee supplier Union Roast:
They call themselves Union because the core value they've expressed is "we would not be able to make great coffee without our partners (the farmers that grow their incredible coffee)". They are one of the first roasters in the UK to trade directly with coffee farmers. Union focuses on paying their partners a fair price to enable them to invest in their farms, families and workers. They work with their partners longer term, towards continually improving the quality of coffee and livelihoods.
Kauai stores serve chicken and eggs that are farmed free-range and feather-friendly. No fishy feeds, antibiotics or cooped-up coops – only the best conditions for our chickens.
What do we source from Herb Fed?
About our supplier Herb Fed:
Herb Fed located in Yorkshire strives on supplying excellent tasting produce and knowing the importance of where it's being sourced. They have a traditional farmed approached, where their poultry is hand-fed and kept in small flocks, so they are genuinely free to forage for food and roam their Yorkshire pasture.
Herb Fed birds are on a special diet which includes over ten varieties of fresh herbs. On top of their natural cereal-based feed, free from additives and growth promoters, they have adapted our bird's diet to introduce fresh herbs. The herbs are a by-product produced locally, by the founder's aunt's herb company – Herbs Unlimited.
They are proud to be supplying nationwide whilst, maintaining the highest possible animal welfare standards and enhancing their diet with fresh herbs #
Kauai we source dried aged beef, all from the land of Scotland!
What do we source from Henderson Meat?
About our beef supplier Henderson Meat:
John Henderson Butchers started back in 1934 when Andrew and David's grandfather was sent to Kirkcaldy, Fife by his brother (John) to open a butchers shop in the High Street.
Hendersons Meat is a business dedicated to sourcing and supplying the best quality fresh meat with complete traceability for peace of mind. All their beef is Scotch beef; the majority comes from the North of Scotland, in particular, the Black Isle where farming is as natural as possible, using traditional breeds.
