About Farmdrop

Farmdrop represents a new economic approach to food retailing whereby the benefits of cutting out the middlemen are shared between customers who enjoy fresher, healthier food at lower prices, and smaller scale producers who enjoy best-ever trading terms. Our mission is to Fix The Food Chain, something we plan to do by providing the best food retail experience.

Our Enfield Hub team:

We have recently opened a hub in Enfield in order to expand our operation beyond the North and South Circular. You will be joining a team of Shift Managers, Team Leaders, Hubbers and Farmdroppers (we prefer not to call them pickers and drivers) who are playing their part in fixing the food chain.
