We’re all about the food! At Fresh Direct, we take huge pride in being a leading supplier to the members of TUCO. We’ll always be a fruit and veg supplier at heart, but our love of food has led us to diversify and seek out an even greater range of products; we now supply everything from day-to-day goods such as milk and butter, too much more specialised products such as high end gourmet products.

We are proud be a non-corporate, family owned business that haven’t forgotten our roots and still represent the same passion for quality, service and values that we were built on – way back in 1966 in our modest beginnings as a mobile greengrocer operating out of an Austin van.

Nowadays the van has retired and we use our fleet of 200 refrigerated trucks, trailers and vans and a team of around 1,000 people to distribute our products out of 7 UK sites, 7 days a week. The scale of our operation these days means that we now handle over 3,000 tons of fruit and veg every week, and our products end up on around 2 million plates a day!
