Friends reunited – the one where we catch up with our local suppliers!

The French Rooms is now open after many months of Covid19 lockdown closure, and we are catching up with our local suppliers who consistently provide us with the best quality produce and service. We have missed them all. They are part of the French Rooms family.

Many of our trusted suppliers are members of the Taste Causeway collaborative, which represents our world-renowned food and drink, cultivated by passionate people, in the stunning landscape of the Causeway Coast & Glens. Supporting local businesses has never been more critical, and Taste Causeway has brought producers and providers together. Their support encourages and develops members to achieve their full potential. We are now a growing community of producers, hospitality, retailers, accommodation and experience providers. Our shared values connect us. Promoting best practice for our producers and showcasing all that is great about being on this coast with its stunning landscape is at the heart of what Taste Causeway is about. To find out more about Taste Causeway, check their website and online shop.

Supporting local businesses has never been more critical. We use other local suppliers such as First 4 Fruit, Apperley’s and Donegal Prime Fish, to name but a few. Developing strong supplier relationships is part of our core values as an organisation. Price is only one part of our decision-making process when selecting suppliers. Quality, consistency, and service hold value to us. We are fortunate to have suppliers who go the extra mile for us.
