It seems that everyone has something to say about supermarkets at the moment and they’re coming in for a lot of stick.

Recently supermarkets have hit the news for many reasons, from trying to open stores where communities don’t want them and bullying Councils to misleading labelling of products as British and the tonnes of food waste they create.

People often feel like they don’t have much choice about where to shop and we’re stuck with the way things are.

However, there’s now a new wave of alternatives to supermarkets coming through that are more ethical. This article in the Ecologist has picked 6 of the best.

What do you think about these alternatives? Will they take off? What would make you want to shop there?

    I rarely use a supermarket as I like to buy completely organic food. I get most of my fruit and veg from Riverford and more store cupboard items from Abel & Cole or Goodness Direct.
