The online platform which enables users to shop from Bristol’s independent food retailers and producers is aiming to raise £150,000 through Crowdcube and the government’s SEIS investment scheme to facilitate an expansion
Good Sixty launched in Bristol in September 2016, connecting shoppers with independent food businesses such as cheesemongers, farm shops and delis. Using the latest technology, the Good Sixty website allows users to browse and buy from independent stores and have products delivered to their door.
The company states that the number of independents listed on the website has expanded to over 70 and sales have grown by an average of 15% month-on-month since launch. The company hopes that through securing further investment it will expand across the South West and into London, while also enhancing the functionality of the platform.
Chris Edwards, co-founder of Good Sixty said, “I’m amazed by the amount of great independent shops and small-scale producers out there. Many people want to support their local high streets but simply don’t have the time to buy groceries from specialist shops or hunt out their local producers. Good Sixty and the service we provide will become an essential tool for these great independent food businesses in this digital age, helping these retailers and producers share their passion and build on their loyal customer base."
