Why choose us?
Reasons to work with us
Your business is our business and we’re committed to supplying the best local produce and individual service, at great prices! That’s why we’re the supplier of choice for hotels, restaurants, pubs, and schools.
More than just fruit and veg
We don’t just sell fruit and veg (though we do sell plenty because it tastes delicious). We also supply dairy products, dry goods, fresh quality meats, sandwiches and prepared vegetables and a full chandlery service. We also have the only Bonded Store in the south-west, supplying visiting ships with all of your duty free needs.
If there’s something you’re after that you can’t see on our product list the chances are we can source it for you, so please speak to one of our friendly team who will be happy to help.
We’re proud of what we supply and our whole team is dedicated to giving excellent customer service. Reliability is central to everything we do, because your business depends upon it. We are proud that our clients return to us again and again, because they know they can trust us.
Reducing food miles
We don’t believe our produce should cost the earth, so source everything as locally as possible. Our hard working growers are our bread and butter and so we pay them what we think their quality produce is worth, rather than the minimum price. This helps us to give back to the community by enabling our suppliers to re-invest and keep their businesses sustainable. This in turn benefits our customers, by ensuring a regular supply of excellent local produce.
Buying locally also reduces your food miles and our carbon footprint. Besides, why go further afield, when we have first-class produce right on our doorstep? At Tamar Fresh we’ve also invested in a new fleet of larger, refrigerated vehicles – meaning we visit sites less frequently and deliver more in one go, which is more fuel efficient.
In season advice
Eating produce when it’s in season makes total sense; it adds variety, cuts down on cold storage costs and helps us re-connect with nature. Increasingly, it’s what customers are asking for. If you’re not sure what’s in season or how to make the most of it, just get in touch – our highly experienced team can give you all the advice you need. They’ll also let you know about any special offers available too.
Accredited to Industry Standards
Tamar Fresh is a name you can trust and we are committed to the highest standards. We are audited twice a year by the prestigious food standards consultants STS who are known for setting best practice and industry standards in food safety and hygiene. STS look at every part of the business – our goods, ensuring that they are stored and rotated correctly, staff training, how we run our business, and all aspects of food preparation, overall hygiene of the premises and our production methods. Not everyone in our trade is accredited in this way but for us, it makes complete sense – we work to the highest standards in any case, so we’re happy to be audited in order to offer our customers that reassurance. It is essential for some of our customers that we have this but to others it just offers peace of mind and the confidence that things are being done right!
