“We are immensely proud of the food and drink that make up our hampers, all from fellow entrepreneurs who are out there creating, producing and farming some of the world’s most exceptional food and drink in challenging times”, says Sarah Louise. “Happiness often comes in edible form and we really hope that bringing together all of these great producers into one gourmet hamper that can be delivered direct to your door might bring some light, joy and excitement at a time when we could all do with a little lift.”
Due to their exclusive and often small-batch contents, IMP & MAKER hampers have limited availability which is always clearly marked online at the time of ordering.

About IMP & MAKER
We are passionate about sourcing, packing and delivering the finest produce from Britain and beyond. Behind each product is a story of craft and dedication; a story about each supplier’s history and how they create food and drink to exemplary standards of quality and taste, with the most reputable supply chains.
It is our mission to connect producers and consumers, creating unique theatre around the produce and enhancing transparency within the supply chain. First, we select our producers, exclusively listing award-winning, ethically produced and best-in-class produce.
With our chosen producers, we develop partnerships built on trust and respect. We seek to understand our produce’s lifecycle, working with farmers to consistently ensure the highest standards of production, welfare and environmental impacts.
Through collaboration with producers, chefs, and food technicians, we create both regular subscription boxes and limited-edition, seasonal boxes for consumers to enjoy. Each box is hand-packed in the heart of Lincolnshire, containing the best produce, procured lovingly.
