Why people work here

Our goal is to be a destination employer in fresh food, a company people want to work with and work for. We believe in fair pay, good working conditions and secure employment. That’s why we pay at least £7.55 per hour – no exceptions – and don’t employ people on zero hours contracts. We value people working together, taking responsibility for themselves, each other and the customer.


I like the way the company has grown but retained its personal touch. I know I can make a positive contribution to the business.

Debbie McConnell, Operations Manager


I enjoy the people; their passion; and the company’s determination to succeed in a fast moving, challenging, retailer-driven environment. The opportunities for career development and the support structure in place are second to none.

Suz Meacock, Category Manager
