Peer Support


All Better Food Trader members have access to the peer-to-peer Slack workspace, where you can ask questions and share advice across the network. If you haven’t been given access to Slack please email

We encourage you to check in each week to see what’s been going on in the Slack workspace as there are always lots of brilliant discussions and useful sharing of tips, ideas and resources – the more you put in, the more you get out!

Here is a short guide to getting started in Slack

Here are five tips for getting started on Slack.


We run regular online meet-ups grouped around specific roles and responsibilities, so that you can speak to people from other organisations across the network who are going through exactly the same things as you!

See the Events section within the BFT Members’ site for more details. We currently run meet-ups for:

  • Veg Box Schemes
  • Shops
  • Marketing 

Let us know if you think any other meet-ups would be useful – email Nicki on


We do not run a formal mentoring scheme, however many of our members have forged strong relationships with other individuals within the Better Food Traders network and have become informal mentor-buddies to each other.

If you would like to find a mentor within our network, or would like to offer your time to mentor someone else, please get in touch with Nicki on for suggestions about potential mentor pairings.
