The Real Food Company, Alsager
The Real Food Company was founded in Congleton by new parents Carol and Nick, who were in search of the best food for their daughter, Silvie. It was first launched providing only vegetarian food and products, but after lots of research they decided meat should be an essential part of their diet. The Real Food Company ceased being a purely vegetarian establishment and added high quality locally-reared organic and pasture-fed meat to their range.
Today, and following a move to Alsager, Carol and Nick are dedicated to providing wholesome, healthy foods to keep people from the county and beyond eating well and fighting fit.

His wholefoods shop also has a range of bodycare products, essential oils and medicinal herbs.
