Our dry and chilled goods division, the Essential Food Company, takes pride in offering ‘every product, every day’. We know that customers understand the seasonal nature of fresh produce but that they also expect staple products like sugar, salt, oil and flour to be available whenever they need them. Similarly kitchen consumables should never be ‘out of stock’ – our commitment to stocking the things you need and delivering them when you need them is second to none.
