Waitrose doesn’t feature Eastern European food on the website or in stores and this does seem rather snobbish. After the European Union referendum in 2016, some stores moved Eastern European food out of the World Foods aisle and to the supermarket backwaters. Other stores removed it altogether. So whether you find anything from Eastern Europe, is hit and miss.

We have tried all the products below and been happy with them. In particular the water, butter and great coffee.
