The Sussex Breakfast scheme promotes local and seasonal produce found throughout Sussex and assures that ingredients are bought from local farm shops supplied by Sussex farmers or sourced from producers based locally in the county of Sussex.

Our hotel, The White House, has achieved the Sussex breakfast award because over 80% of our breakfast ingredients are locally sourced.

A Sussex Breakfast means reduced food miles and shorter supply chains. Therefore, the vast majority of the food you are served will not have been transported outside of Sussex.

Those serving Sussex Breakfasts are guaranteed to be using at least sixty per cent ethically produced and locally sourced ingredients, including bacon and sausages from pigs reared in open straw barns or freely outside and eggs laid by free range chickens. Other ingredients include homemade jam and marmalade, seasonal apple juice and fresh milk from small local dairies.
