Our Partners



Our Corporate Partners support the day to day running of Dorset Food Network and the services we offer. They are also available to provide support to our members.


Dorset Food Network proudly supports two local charities. Both charities provide much needed services in the local area and without public support and fund-raising would not be able to do what they do. We are so pleased that we are able to help raise awareness for such worthy causes.


Our Corporate Members are all businesses whose products and services we recommend and who do great work in the local area. Dorset Food Network Premium Members can benefit from selected discounts offered by our Corporate Members.
