ju ju’s cafe has been a small independent family run restaurant since the very beginning (nearly 10 years ago!) and we appreciate every one of our customers in Birmingham and beyond that go out of their way to support us. Our success is particularly heart warming when you consider how many restaurants we have surrounding us, mostly chains, in Brindley Place and by the Arena Birmingham. We believe in passing this karma down the line by picking small independent local suppliers who provide the best produce. So everyone who eats with us knows that they're local independent restaurant is supporting local independent suppliers... boom!
Traceability of food and drinks is a trend we can get behind at ju ju’s as we believe our customers deserve to know exactly where their food has come from, how it has been farmed or reared and understand the ethos behind the way we source products at ju ju’s.
Here you’ll find some more info on our main food suppliers and why we work with them.
Russell’s Butchers of Shenstone
We love working with Russell’s because they source their meat from local farms and buy free range where possible. They supply us with fabulous free range eggs with wonderfully orange yolks as well as great meat. All of our pork is Packington Pork which is sourced from a farm less than five miles away from the shop. The pigs at Packington are completely outdoor bred and reared in fields as well as additive, growth promoter and antibiotic free. Therefore, every sausage, faggot or pork belly dish comes from happy pigs that were free to roam. All of our beef (the topside for our Sunday Roast is exquisite if we do say so ourselves!), lamb, ox cheek and chicken are sourced locally and are Red Tractor Assured.
A M Coopers and Sons
We’ve been working with Dave at A M Coopers and Sons for nearly 10 years and over this time not only have they offered a great service but we’ve also become good friends. Most of the produce we source from them (our potatoes, leeks, carrots etc.) is grown on the family farm called Mullensgrove Farm in Sutton Coldfield. Anything that they’re unable to grow for us (such as avocados and lemons) are sourced from Birmingham Wholesale Market.
Frazier's Wine Merchants
We've been working with Frazier's Wine Merchants for a couple of years now and Edward, our account manager, has been an absolute star. Frazier's offer a huge and varied selection of wines from all over the world and they're great at sourcing those special wines for private parties and specific customer requests! Run by the Frazier's family and started five generations ago it's a great independent business that still retains a personal touch and fab customer service. They also sell to the public online as well as through their wine warehouse in Shirley and have a great blog keeping us up to date with the latest happenings in the wine world.
If you'd like to know anymore about how we source our produce don't hesitate to email Beatrice at firstname.lastname@example.org who will be happy to answer any questions.
