Fresh, local food served at The Hayes

November 2028


At the Hayes Conference Centre, we love to use fresh, local and organic products where possible. These are some of our local suppliers.

We use local butchers CN Wright from Codnor, Derbyshire, who produce their award-winning sausages fresh in shop and deliver to our door daily for use with our breakfast menu.

In the summer months, we buy our ice cream from Bluebells Dairy Farm in Spondon, Derbyshire. This is an award-winning ice cream, made fresh on site from their own milking cows.

Only free range eggs are used at The Hayes Conference Centre. These have won us the Good Egg Award from Compassion in World Farming. They are from our local supplier Highfields Happy Hens in Etwall, Derbyshire.

Also used are free range pork products, again winning us the award for the Good Pig Award from Compassion in World Farming. These come from free range pig farmer, Anna’s Happy Trotters in Doncaster.

Fresh fruit and vegetables

Fresh fruit and vegetables are bought from the daily market in Sheffield every morning. AJ Webb collects a fresh produce of seasonal fruit and vegetables to match the seasonality of our menus.

Milk, cream and yoghurts have been sourced from Shergills Dairy in Derby, delivered fresh each morning ready for breakfast.

Local bakery, Luke Evans, based only a few miles from site in Ridding’s, Derbyshire, delivers our fresh wye breads and bloomer loafs for the breakfast buffet each morning.

Variety of Clipper Teas

Fair trader, Kingdom Coffee, supplies all our coffee, tea and sugar products, supporting the charity Toybox - who help change the world for street children. Over the last 3 years they have donated over £30,000 to this cause.

Looking into the future of the environment, the Hayes Conference Centre has just changed all our coffee cups, so these are all biodegradable and greener for the planet. This also includes our recycled plastic water cups and drinking straws.

At the Hayes Conference Centre, we believe small changes help make a difference, and in providing the best service possible for our customers.
