How does a Hamper fit through a Letter Box?
The Letter Box Hampers are designed to fit through all standard size UK letter boxes. Contents are carefully selected and packaged to ensure that all the items you might expect in a traditional hamper are available, but without the additional expense, delivery charges and waste often associated with bigger hampers.
The inspiration for Letterbox Hamper came about when founder Jonathan Winfield decided to embark on a similar crusade to the Real Food Hub and raise the profile of local artisan food and drink producers.
Letter Box Hamper's west country base has always been synonymous with fine food and drink, from as far back as 1900 when Plymouth Gin was shipping 1000 cases a week to New York, since then it has given its name to a number of culinary specialities such as Devon cream tea (involving scones or rather Devonshire Splits), jam and clotted cream and a wealth of tasty, creamy cheeses.
Jonathan has now expanded his culinary quest across the nation, in search of high quality independent British food and drink from the rest of the UK. He's most often found travelling the length and breadth of our nation, sampling and tasting the best regional produce and getting to know the incredible personalities who make them.
