Our mission is simple; empower our customers through the sourcing and provision of only the finest produce from around the world delivered with the highest levels of service.
Our family-run company was founded in 1964 by the late Thomas Barton and friend Jack Redman, selling potatoes to the local chip shops, organically growing with a focus on the burgeoning Asian produce trade.
Today the Barton family continue at the helm and we are recognised by the industry as one of the UK’s largest fresh fruit and vegetable wholesalers, with a full range product offering and staff in key destinations around the world.
Today with our head office based in Manchester at New Smithfield Market we occupy several traditional pitches along with our own purpose built refrigerated warehouse housing our sales, operations, quality assurance and logistics distributing our fresh produce to our valued customers nationally and internationally.
From our humble beginnings with just the common potato our lines of fresh produce now cover fruit, vegetables, salad, exotic, world foods and eggs.
