Dart Fresh

"At Dart Fresh, we aim to provide the best quality food products at a competitive market price, whilst simultaneously providing you with the quality and personal service that only a family company can supply. 'The extra mile' is part of what we do, and we pride ourselves on the positive relationships we have with our customers."

John Pritchard - Director

About Us

Dart Fresh Produce has been a family run business since 1957, supplying produce to the Wholesale, Multiple, Retail and Catering Trades.

We work very closely with many local and national growers, making sure we are guaranteed the best quality British produce throughout the seasons.

As the seasons change, and it is not possible for British produce, we go from continent to continent to gather the finest fresh produce. This allows us, and you, to get it in its prime condition.

We can now source most produce 12 months a year by following the changing seasons across the globe.

We offer fresh deliveries 6 days a week, a second delivery for those busy days, as well as deliveries on Sundays and bank holidays for those little emergencies too. This is all for our varied customer base across the South West.
