We’re BRC AA accredited, which means our staff are trained in food quality procedures,

Our Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Supply- County Supplies London

Buying

10.30PM

We look at the buying requirements for the day and the special produce requirement report. This helps us get an idea of any produce that needs special grading or if it needs to be at a certain stage of ripeness. We pick and pack orders for 12 hours.
Our warehouse has a continual rotation of produce coming in from our suppliers and growers.

Our Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Order Reception - County Supplies London

Goods In

8PM - 10AM

We check all products by look, feel and temperature. Frozen goods and dairy are checked in by an infrared probe. All goods are checked into our temperature monitoring system that provides us with 24-hour real-time fridge updates.
We keep different temperatures for different products, allowing the produce to keep its flavour and delicate quality for longer.

Our Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Packing and Delivery - County Supplies London

Packing and delivery

3AM - Noon

Once the orders have been thoroughly checked and are ready for delivery, our team inspects the refrigerated vehicles. Drivers keep the same runs daily so they understand customer delivery needs.
All vehicles are equipped with GARMIN tracking to give our customers real-time updates, accurate delivery times and fridge temperatures.

Getting
the best produce
to your kitchen
is worth it

And it’s a team effort. I get to the market around 10pm when the packers are in mid swing. We then work through the night to pick, pack and load the vans. It’s a 24/7 operation delivering twice a day to London and the home counties.

We’re only as good as our last order, so we’re consistently striving for the highest quality, accuracy and service.
