Most of my life has been around produce. When I was 10 years old, every Saturday my mum would drop me off in Fulham to work on my grandad and uncle’s fruit stall. When I was 12, I would cycle from Kingston to Fulham to help set up the stall and then wait for the lorry, full to the brim with fruit purchased from New Covent Garden Market that morning.
I met Peter May when I was 20. He was one of my dad’s friends, and he taught me about the industry and the complexities of buying. We quicky became friends for life. In 2005, we started County Supplies London together. He sadly passed in 2018 but his presence is everywhere and in everything that we do, and he will never be forgotten.
Today, we supply London’s top restaurants and prestigious kitchens with an ever-growing list of produce. We’ve grown from 15 people to 45, and now operate a shiny fleet of 15 FORS accredited vans. And that’s not all—this year we’ll be moving into a new 7500 sq. ft, fully temperature-controlled warehouse in New Covent Garden Market.
