Indie Füde supports award-winning local makers to promote, sell and deliver their products throughout the world. All the products they sell are made in small batches and lovingly crafted in kitchens and galleys throughout the island.
Their team of tasters have munched their way through hundreds of jars, bottles and boxes to bring to the retail market their wide range of food – jams, oils, relishes, dressings, vinegars, spices, condiments, confectionary, beverages, charcuterie, butters…. They love discovering new and delicious things!
Foodies can shop, gift or subscribe through their unique store in Comber or via the Indie Füde website. Indie Füde also specialises in bespoke corporate gift hampers, and ensures all its packaging is 100% recyclable.
Founder and Chief Taster, Johnny McDowell, wants to share his love of local Irish food: “There are lots of really exciting products being made locally. As we know the Irish are well travelled and it’s really started coming through in the food here now, every day we are seeing new and exciting flavour and taste combinations coming from our amazingly talented and creative makers.
Indie Füde hand picks the best of these and gets them to the customers allowing the maker to focus on what they do best – making this scrummy food!
Our name is a hybrid of our two main philosophies – indigenous and independent. We stock more than 750 products from across Ireland. Each one has been chosen because it is from a small batch, artisan producer. We love sourcing and tasting products and hearing the stories behind the ingredients.”
They now also have a 28 seater events space and supper club room, where local chefs and producers showcase their artisanal goodies and cooking skills to our customers, as well as private parties, tourists and corporate groups.
