Cornwall & Devon Fresh Supplier Map

WestCountry Fruit Sales is the beating heart of the WestCountry group. The business that started it all has continued to thrive sourcing the finest fresh produce from the South West. We are committed to growing, sourcing and curating the widest range of innovative and inspiring fresh produce. We work closely with our farmers and growers to source as much local produce as possible. From root vegetables like potatoes, parsnips and swede, through alliums and brassicas such as leeks, onions and cauliflower, to salad leaves and specialist market garden crops including the wonderful soft fruit grown in the South West through the summer. We are extremely proud to resume growing our own produce in 2014, working with Pete Lawrance, a vastly experienced grower famous for his Lizard Leaves range. We purchased Canara Farm, a market garden near Mylor, between Truro and Falmouth, with three huge polytunnels providing a huge variety of specialist varieties including heritage tomatoes, broad beans, berries, salad leaves, edible flowers and herbs. If you would like to meet Pete and tour our Canara Farm we would love to accommodate you. Please contact your account representative to arrange a visit.

The lack of stored, quality graded potato, available for current demand and future storage is now being realised. We forecast shortages and price pressure continuing right through to the mid-year and the start of this season’s new crop. Graded Chipping Potatoes – slightly smaller in size – go with trusted brands to ensure best size and quality – we recommend Duchy Fries and Westcountry Fries in Devon Salad Mid Potatoes – harvest quality has been affected by the extreme conditions. Higher prices will continue to reflect stored crop levels against ongoing high demand in this category.     Latest News Links – Low fennel quantities & high prices UK Onion Crop halved High veg prices due to bad weather Potatoes – Quality & Processing Concerns Potato Harvest – Down 25% Food Price Inflation – Record Breaking Food Prices ‘to rise 5%’ UK Carrot Crisis Fears of Food Supply Crisis Farmers Union – Emergency Weather Conference Hot Weather & Fruit Price Hike Heatwave & Drought – Farmers in crisis ...
