Our foremost priority is to source and supply local produce of the highest quality, with the lowest food miles. We believe that this strategy is the most sustainable and environmental approach to the local fresh food supply chain. Our customers tell us it makes for the most delicious dishes too!
With the experience of five generations, we are specialists in sourcing and suppling fresh produce from the local area and beyond. You cannot beat eating a vegetable that has been pulled out of the ground only that morning!
Our approach is to always supply local crops when in season and we have excellent partnerships with growers and producers in the area, some of whom grow crops especially for us and our customers.
We readily offer our customers advice on seasonal crops and cost-effective produce. We even work on requests for specialist crops and products.
We pride ourselves on high quality and excellent customer care. Our buyers and warehouse team are highly trained in sourcing and picking only the best quality produce and as a small company, we have the capability and determination to get to know each customer.
We are unique in our approach to supply with a strict radius of our base which means we can offer a total service. For example; you will be given mobile numbers for, and visits from our directors who are always on hand to help. We can even come out with an emergency second delivery if needed!
In recent years we have established an extensive larder, again focussing on local products including Dairy, Bread and Ice Cream and more, from Wiltshire, The Cotswolds and the South West of England. We also have a comprehensive store of the finest ingredients, dry and frozen goods any modern chef would need.
Another service we provide is Prepared Vegetables to order. We have a preparation room in which we can provide a bespoke service for chefs within a 24hr turnaround.
