Champion of the Independents!

Richard Foster

Hailing from the picturesque Peak District, Richard's life has been intertwined with the independent food and drink retail scene for as long as he can remember. You could say he's practically got local produce running through his veins!

Having spent the majority of his professional life in the heart of Derbyshire, Richard has evolved into a true advocate for supporting small, local food and drink producers.

Now part of the Hattersley's team, Richard teams up with Emma to make sure our trade customers are well taken care of. From delivering orders to ensuring their cellars are perpetually stocked.

Outside of work, you might find Richard exploring the rolling hills of the Peak District or perhaps at a local food market, chatting with producers and discovering the latest tasty treat.

Spain, Rioja

“Choosing a wine can be a real head-scratcher with so many options. Normally I’m not a red wine drinker but after trying this at a tasting with Gomez Cruzardo, Kármán has become one of my favourites.  It has a smooth, fresh taste which makes it a great easy drinking everyday wine from the beautiful Rioja region”
