As direct importers we combine local and national sourcing of seasonal fruit and vegetables with a comprehensive global network of suppliers ensuring all-year-round continuity. We can always source quality produce at excellent prices, any time of the year and are committed to being fair and ethical.
We have a rich variety of customers including supermarkets, food service, convenience stores, farm shops, caterers, and independent grocers. We are passionate about produce and fully support their business developments, tailoring what we offer to their specific needs. We are not just a specialist wholesale and distributor of fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the United Kingdom and beyond, we also supply dairy and eggs as well as pre-packed and prepared fruit and vegetables, ideal for the convenience store and caterer.
We get involved with every aspect of the food chain, from seed planting to produce transportation and delivery, buying direct from the producer ensuring superb quality and full traceability.
We pride ourselves in fully supporting the local farming economy wherever possible both minimising food-mile costs and maximising freshness. Also as an environmentally aware company, we recycle and use reusable crates wherever possible.
