From the Farm
Working direct with farms means that we can do exactly that. Bring produce direct from the farm to your business. We have farms all over the UK growing the widest range of fresh, local, organic produce which we then bring, every night, into our purpose built facility in Feltham. From here we break down pallets and distribute to our customers, many of whom receive deliveries from us multiple times a week.
At the same time as working with UK based growers, we work with growers based in several different European countries along with, for certain products, at certain times of the year, much further afield. This enables us to not only extend the season for a lot of products to being almost year round but also offer our customers products such as oranges, lemons, avocados, ginger & all the other lines we can’t grow in the UK.
noun. the ability to be sustained, supported, upheld, or confirmed. Environmental Science. the quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance
So almost by it’s definition the words sustainable and organic are difficult to separate. To use the word sustainable when talking about fresh produce and not include organic is difficult to justify.
Sustainability, not only in the produce we supply, but in how we run our business has an effect on almost every business decision we make. From the vehicles we operate, the supplier we choose for our electricity and gas to the way we handle our recycling and waste. This is at the heart of our business.
Locally Grown & Sourced
From the outset of our business nearly 30 years ago, Langridge has always been about supplying locally grown organic produce to its customers. We have always operated a local sourcing policy and only go further afield for supplies once the UK season has finished or for lines like oranges and bananas that we can’t commercially grow in the UK.More Information
