Feast It says that Feast It Deli is designed to help the embattled hospitality and events sectors and that it is not looking to make any money from the initiative.
Kits start at £15 and include Pizza Pilgrims already highly successful frying pan pizza kits; a fondue kit from The Cheese Bar; and a £80 three-course steak and lobster kit from events caterer Caper & Berry.
There are hopes to grow the platform to encompass craft breweries and to allow food providers to sell goods including ingredients and merchandise.
In more normal times Feast It connects event organisers with suppliers including chefs and restaurant brands.
“We’ve launched Feast It Deli to try and help out the wonderful restaurants and caterers we’re working with,” says co-founder Hugo Campbell.
“We carried out an impact study a few months ago where 61% of our suppliers told us they would go under by March without further government support and as that has not been particularly forthcoming.”
“Here at Feast It we cannot wait for events to come back, bigger and better than ever,” adds co-founder Digby Scott. “But in the meantime it’s so important that we keep supporting this incredible industry to make sure it’s there for us on the other side, and purchasing a meal kit from Feast It Deli is a great way to do that.”
