We have put a pause on orders whilst we curate new monthly boxes. Coming soon!

Our Story

How much better does food taste when you’re backing real people? That’s why we’re out here meeting the best independent producers. As *if* Simona has been making real Italian burrata in Acton for 15 years. That dusty arch in Bermondsey? Yep, that’s where we find Frederic of Dynamic with the best natural wines. And don’t get us started on that tasty free range chicken from Nick and Jacob of Fosse Meadows. 

Who are we: 

Our Co-Founders, Lucy and Josh 

Lucy and Josh have been working in food for a long time, they love what they do and could bang on about it til the cows come home, but they won’t because what you want is proper produce on the table.

They'd love more people to cook with independents. And in time to build a community of food lovers who support being insanely independent. In a “buying sourdough from your local baker feels so much better than a loaf wrapped in plastic from a supermarket” way. It's a simple equation. Proper produce plus top-notch recipes equals more flavours and more feels. Get it on the table. 

Lucy Mee, Co Founder

Lucy as been involved within the London food community for the last 7 years and has created two successful street food businesses which have allowed her to connect with like minded food producers, chefs and creatives. Throughout this journey, over the last 7 years she has seen what was a small selection of food entrepreneurs and producers grow independent businesses that are now at the forefront of our food culture and shape the way we treat our food system. 

On The Table came from a passion to celebrate the makers and producers behind our food in the UK and to showcase the stories, people and processes behind what we eat and to enable these offerings to be brought to yours or someone you loves home. 

Sustainability has always played a huge part of Lucys life and she has a big interest in Biodiversity, seasonality, soil health and regenerative farming which all play a huge role in the sourcing selection and producers she partners with at On The Table.

 Josh Paterson, Co-Founder

The one who keeps us on track. Having a decade of experience within the hospitality sector and also owning a street food business he sure knows a thing or two about flavour and produce. He's out here being an ideas man with a big vision, so you'll often find him walking down the Southbank in London dreaming up our next big move. 

 

Sustainability:

On The Table is all about doing things in the most sustainable way possible. This means using cardboard cool boxes (not ones which are plastic-coated wool insulated) and eco ice-packs that contain zero plastic. But because we are sent produce straight from our suppliers, we do use some single-use plastics to safely contain ingredients as we ship them to you.
