Sustainability & Assurance
It's very important to us that all of our produce is quality checked before we deliver it to clients, therefore we have a robust quality management system in place to ensure that the only the freshest fruit and vegetables make it onto our delivery vans.
William Raymond Bishop founded our company over 60 years ago and it remains a family run business. We are one of the main suppliers of fresh produce in South Wales and make over 2,000 high quality deliveries of fresh produce per week. As an ethical family business, we source our produce locally from Wales and the UK whenever possible.
Our quality and consistency of service has allowed us to provide high quality catering establishments with a variety of fresh, exciting and unusual produce, retaining core contracts for many years.
SUSTAINABILITY & ASSURANCE
We provide temperature and quality controlled deliveries of all fresh produce. Our love for fresh seasonal produce means that we source our fruit and vegetables according to high standards of quality and seasonality.
Using satellite tracking technology, we follow the most efficient routes and ensure that we arrive at a time to suit you. We make daily deliveries across South Wales and Bristol from our wholesale fruit centres.
Although we're based in South Wales, we have expanded our delivery areas to include South West England and customers further afield. We also have a Cardiff centre for businesses who require a wholesale service.
Our fully documented quality structure includes a full HACCP system, cataloging cleaning and temperature control procedures to ensure the safety of our products.
As well as training procedures we also have ethical and sustainability policies, ensuring that we help to preserve and maintain the environment.

Having worked with our suppliers for many years, we are confident that our shared passion to provide the best produce will come through in the variety and quality of what we supply to our customers.
Having our own fruit centres and sourcing produce from local growers as well as the rest of the UK not only means that we are reducing the carbon footprint of our business but also allows us to develop great relationships with our suppliers.
Our advanced navigation system allows us not only to track the delivery of produce but also ensures that our drivers are on the fastest route. This makes our delivery process more sustainable as we use less fuel and also helps us to reach our customers more quickly.
Being based in both Cardiff and Tonyrefail, Rhondda Cynon Taff allows us to be centrally located for delivery to our customers across the South Wales area.
To ensure the maximum freshness of our produce, our main delivery areas are in South Wales and Bristol. Delivering from Llanelli to Lydney, Bridgend to Brecon, we maintain a reliable and economical fleet of vehicles that ensure our deliveries are always on time.
We also consider delivery to areas further away, please get in touch if you are considering using us as your supplier.
As well as our wholesale centre in Cardiff, we also source produce from local and UK growers wherever possible. We also receive products from some of the largest cultivators and manufacturers in Europe.
