Grocer favoured by Prime Minister falls victim to cyber attack

Now hackers hit Carrie Johnson’s caterer: Grocer favoured by Prime Minister and his wife becomes latest company to fall victim to cyber attack

  • Daylesford Organic grocer used by the PM and Carrie is targeted by hackers
  • The Johnsons ate £27,000 worth of Daylesford food in eight months last year
  • Daylesford’s range includes a hamper of breakfast food and drinks for £80 

Boris and Carrie Johnson’s favourite grocer has become the latest company to fall victim to a cyber attack.

Daylesford Organic was targeted by hackers last Wednesday.

Chief executive Nick Fletcher said it had caused ‘significant disruption’ to the company’s operations and IT systems.

Daylesford’s range includes a hamper of breakfast food and drinks for £80, above, jars of £29.99 Manuka honey and organic French trim beef rib for up to £155.99

It is one of a growing number of companies offering high-end ready meals. A Daylesford farm delivery is seen going into Number 10 in January

Mr Fletcher said it had been ‘very upsetting’ – but added that there was no evidence personal data had been taken.

Daylesford was founded by Carole Bamford, the wife of JCB boss Lord Bamford, in 2002. 

It now has three shops in London, an online store and a farm shop in Gloucestershire.

It is one of a growing number of companies offering high-end ready meals.

In eight months last year the Johnsons ate £27,000 worth of Daylesford food.

Daylesford’s range includes a hamper of breakfast food and drinks for £80, jars of £29.99 Manuka honey and organic French trim beef rib for up to £155.99.
