Britain's food deserts - The Guardian July 2016 07/07/2016, In the press

The Guardian interviewed retired Totterdown resident, Tiny Isaacson, who uses fresh-range as a means of accessing affordable and local produce in Bristol.

"Tiny Isaacson has taken advantage of the service offered by grocery company fresh-range that launched in Bristol just last year. It sources fruit, veg, meat and fish from local producers and farmers, cutting out the middleman to offer lower prices: in order to make its food as accessible as possible to people on limited incomes, founder Rich Osborn has chosen to take the uncommercial step of charging a pound to make a doorstep drop on a minimum £20 spend. This means Isaacson can now buy fresher produce than much of what’s on offer elsewhere."
