Our new website www.cranstons.net offers customers all over the mainland UK the chance to purchase Cranstons famous Cumberland Sausage and award winning locally sourced meats.
The on-line grocery market has grown exponentially in recent years with total on-line grocery sales set to hit over £7 billion pounds in 2011. Shopping on-line has proved a hit with time-pressured consumers allowing them to shop for products from home without a potentially stressful trip to the shops.
www.cranstons.net offers twenty different varieties of Cumberland sausage and speciality sausage along with Dry Cured back bacon, traditionally reared Cumbrian lamb, pork from Orchard House Farm nr Penrith and 21 day hung prime quality beef. Customers can also choose from a new range of great value Cranstons meat boxes such as ‘The Cranstons Sausage Selection’ (10 lbs of Cumberland and Speciality Sausage for just £35) and from a trio of luxury gift hampers. Delivery is free for orders over £80 and Only £5 for orders over £50.
Alan Brown, Cranstons Master Butcher and Cumbrian Food Hall manager explains the rationale behind the new on-line shop ‘Our Cumbrian Food Hall is really popular with visitors to Cumbria, many of whom comment that they wish they had access to our produce at home- the new website will allow us to cater for their needs. It will also enable local customers to send friends and family further afield a gift of Cumbrian produce, our new range of meat boxes and trio of hampers have been specially selected with this in mind’’
Philip Cranston believes the website will promote the strength of Cumbrian produce ‘ We are really excited about the new website, in addition to the on-line shop we have included lots of information about our skilled master butchers, the farms we buy from and the history of the Cumberland Sausage. We are lucky to live in a region with a fantastic heritage of rearing prime quality livestock and with a thriving artisan food scene; www.cranstons.net will help to promote the regions ‘foodie’ credentials to a wider public’
