Women who are forging ahead in local food businesses have been captured by an award-winning photographer to celebrate The East of England Co-op’s Sourced Locally promotion.
Photographer Jenny Lewis has captured 10 women who are at the forefront of promoting local food set against a backdrop of farm bales in Brundish. The piece is titled The Future of British Produce.
Among the women featured is Stephany Hardingham, founder of Alder Tree Cream Ices based at Alder Carr Farm in Needham Market.
Others include Fiona Brice, joint director of Havensfield Eggs, Laura Srathern, joint owner at Fairfield Farm Crips and Hannah Marriage, director at Marriage’s Flour.
Jenny, who produced her One Day Young project capturing mothers within 24 hours of having a baby, has also photographed Dame Maggie Smith, Keira Knightley and Celia Imrie.
Roger Grosvenor, joint chief executive at the East of England Co-op, said: “East Anglia has a proud history of producing some of the most exceptional food in the country, and as the largest independent retailer in the region we are passionate about championing this produce and bringing great local food to our customers.”
