Part of the family

We're one of the largest importers of fresh produce in the UK.

As well as fruit and vegetables, we focus on a number of other areas including houseplants, flowers, beverages and nuts. We procure everything from Australian Chardonnay, to Kenyan flowers; South African citrus fruits, to British strawberries and our buyers work hard to ensure we source the very best products at the very best price.

Once our produce arrives in the UK, it's dispatched to one of our 7 dedicated packing sites. Find out more about each of them below
