Sir; I read with interest the letter written by Roger Banks (The Grocer, January 19) where he lamented the lack of availability of English foods in France. I sympathise with his and all other British nationals' predicament, whether living in France or anywhere else around the world. I am md of a company called Expat Essentials. Our business was formed two years ago to supply a taste of home delivered to your door' to all British nationals living abroad and who may not be able to get any of the foods, including Marks & Spencer's, that they miss so much. Delivery costs to France are very reasonable, too. They start from as little as £6 for up to 30kg of groceries delivered direct to the customers door, usually in less than a week from the time of ordering. With over 3,000 product lines to choose from, there is very little that we cannot supply. Martin Lambert MD Expat Essentials Int London Sir; I am writing with reference to the letter by Roger Banks (The Grocer, January 19, p19). I operate an ecommerce web site exporting British food, gifts and souvenirs to consumer and trade customers around the world. British expats frequent the site to stock up on the items they miss from home' such as tea, chocolate, baked beans and crisps to name but a few. We are able to ship up to 30kg of British goodies to France for only £15.49 on a guaranteed 48 hour delivery service. Smaller orders can be sent via standard airmail delivery.
