Business name: Goodness Grazers

Your name: Robyn Hatley

Where are you based and what do you do?

At Goodness Grazers, we provide the most delicious, vibrant & healthy Grazing Platters (& Picnic Grazing Boxes) for both Events and Businesses…. We source as much as we can from other local businesses to bring you a unique eating experience. The photos on our website www.goodnessgrazers.co.uk speak for themselves!  

What inspired you to start your business?

Goodness Grazers was created in the Summer of 2018 by an amazing Kiwi girl, called Monique.  I took over the business in November 2018, when Monique returned home to NZ. I love good food, I love creativity, and I’ve studied Nutrition – so it was a “Hell, yeah!” when Monique offered me the business… And I’m loving it!

What do you love about running a business in Bath?

The vibrancy of this little city is incredible! I run another business (online training) which can be lonely at times. Goodness Grazers means that I get to meet such lovely people, who appreciate good food!  Whether we are catering for businesses in Bath, or local events or private parties, or collaborating with others, I’m always encouraged at how Bathonians support each other, and local business.   

You’ve got five minutes to grab a sandwich, where do you go?

Friends are Electric for an Open Sandwich; or Beyond the Kale for a wrap!
