Our history

A Brief Journey Through Time

We’re a family business supplying top, local produce to clients across Cornwall and Devon for more than 30 years. Tamar Fresh was started by Francis Barrett in 1988. He learnt the trade working for a fruit and vegetable wholesalers, before he had the opportunity to have his own shop and Tamar Fresh was born.

The business went from strength to strength, growing and expanding to the range of quality companies we have today.

Tamar Fresh is first and foremost a family business, which is now run by Francis’ sons – David, Nigel and Ian. As a family, we know the importance of serving up the best food possible at home and that’s our business ethos too.

Our vast experience means we’ve expanded our range as our customers’ tastes have changed and now offer a wide range of dairy products, dry goods, sandwiches and prepared vegetables.

Many of our staff have been with us since the beginning and are part of our extended family! It means we have well over 100 years of experience between us; knowledge we’re glad to share with you. 

Knowledge is vital to our businesses and we’re all passionate about the quality products we sell. Our team comes from a range of backgrounds across the food supply sector, with specialists not just in fruit and vegetables but also dairy, dried goods and prepared food. So however unusual your request, we’re confident we can source it for you!
