It’s one of life’s great inequities that some of the best designer makers and artisan food producers barely sell enough to make a living. Many have to combine their craft with a second job to make ends meet. Websites such as Etsy, Folksy and Notonthehighstreet have helped but getting a product onto shop shelves is far more difficult.
