Where possible we reduce our food miles by back hauling produce on our transport when passing through various growers in our distribution area of Hampshire, Dorset, Sussex, Surrey and Wiltshire.


Journey times and distances are kept to a minimum by careful route planning and the vehicle fleet is constantly tracked by satellite navigation to minimise fuel costs thus reducing food miles and used as a management tool to review delivery.Vehicles are regularly maintained and subject to daily safety and hygiene checks.
