The summer is here and the light we were promised at the end of the Covid tunnel is finally glimmering through. While it may feel like we have changed shape several times over the course of the past year, it is exciting to see that life is coming back to some sort of normality.
As we look forward to easing out of lockdowns it is necessary to stop, take a breath and look how resilient the world has been over the past year.
Craft Food Traders was born out of necessity during the pandemic and has transformed into a one stop shop for Irish Artisan Food and drink. Health and wellness have always been central to the choice of products we provide our customers online. Now more than ever consumers are more conscious of what they are buying and are trying to support local as much as possible. It has been amazing getting to know all the amazing Irish producers behind the brands we stock.
Our selection is always expanding, and we have gone from a few bits and pieces to a full range of products. We have been able to branch them out into speciality sections like vegan, gluten free, health and wellness, indulgence and most recently we added a “for the kitchen” range.
Health and wellness have also become a top priority for employers as many employees were forced to work remotely and suddenly were cut off from their usual social outlets at work. It is looking like remote working will continue and the return to work will likely center around a hybrid approach. Finding the balance between optimal working in a different environment and health and wellbeing is continually evolving.
We curated a selection of gift and care boxes that are perfect for corporate staff gifts and of course there is always the option to build your own if there are items you’d prefer to include. Keeping people connected has been hard during the past year but small things like sending a care package has helped to stay connected with their workplace.
As we are cautiously making our way back out into the real world we are here and ready to transform again into whatever the new normal is and more importantly keep providing a service that we hope has brought small slices of joy to those who needed it when our lovely purple box has arrived at a doorstep.
