A Bit Of Nourishment Comes To Cupar

Nourish Cupar Fife

In a diversion away from traditional fast food, Fife businesswoman, Tracey Pedder, has created a healthy takeaway offering in her new shop called Nourish, based on the Crossgate in Cupar.

From a career in social care spanning 30 years in local government, Tracey wanted to run a business that matched her healthy and fit lifestyle.  From wraps, bagels, smoothies to soups, salads and baked potatoes, she wants to encourage people of all ages to try a healthier takeaway option.

Tracey said: “I think more people than ever are looking for a healthier option for breakfast, lunch and snacks.  Our menu is continually evolving and we can now offer a variety of fresh and tasty breakfast and lunch options that customers can preorder for collection. Every ingredient is carefully selected for a balanced, healthy diet.”

Business Gateway Fife has assisted the business with support from adviser, Shona Morrison, who was able to access Net Zero grant for a more energy efficient fridge and dishwasher, along with some LED lighting.  She was also successful in securing some IEE (Integrated Employer Engagement) City Partnership funding, enabling Tracey to extend opening hours, create a pre-order facility and delivery service, assist staff training and uniform costs. Catherine Bartle, Business Gateway Fife’s HR adviser, was able to give Tracey important contract and employment advice.  She now employs a full-time chef and two part time employees.

Catherine commented: “Tracey has created an excellent business model that fills a niche in the busy Cupar Town Centre.  She is also focusing on minimising packaging, using sustainable materials and keeping food waste to a minimum which is another step forward to achieving Net Zero.”
