May the Pulse be with you
In this month's Pulse, we bring you closer to our staff team - the people who keep the True Food show on the road. Our foodie focus is on cheese - covering a local supplier, the nutritional benefits and a recipe for vegetarian Homity events and more!
Local supplier of the month: Village Maid Cheese
Village Maid Cheese is based at Risely, 10 miles from the True Food Shop. Village Maid Cheese was started by Anne Wigmore in 1986.  Together with her husband Andy, and staff, the company now produce three award-winning cheeses.
We were absolutely delighted to win "My favourite shop" award at the Reading Retail Awards on 17 September. Thank you to everyone who voted for us!
