Trusted imported produce - All of our overseas suppliers are personally audited and approved by our technical team to ensure the same high standards we achieve at home. All imported produce can be screened and sorted using the same exacting processes as our baby food ingredients.

The story from
field to frozen

We listen to our customers specific requirements - this could be peppers with a low micro, sweet corn with a strict tolerance on EVM or leeks cut to a specific size slice… We’re good at finding what our customers require, going above and beyond and doing it competitively too!

Our technical manager personally audits the factories we import from – she’ll snoop around every piece of machinery to check they can meet our strict specifications! She’s even worked with factories to improve their processes – one example of this was helping a factory install a sorting line to help their peppers and leeks meet our specs. All factories must have a BRC certification and be able to provide all the required documentation.

Once imported, the product can go directly to our customers’ factories, or can be stored in our cold store to be delivered in mixed loads to our customer’s as and when they are needed.

Once in our store there are further options to inspect and sort the product or mix into our customers’ required blends.
