|About Supplier||Caterite stock over 350 lines of fresh fruit and vegetables ranging from all the basics, to micro herbs, edible flowers, seasonal greens, salad essentials and exotics. Through our customer base we have developed and grown the range over a number of years, and now offer the most expansive and accessible fresh produce range in Cumbria. Over fifty percent of our business is fresh, so we understand the importance of availability, quality and price. Unlike most other wholesalers, we purchase direct from growers or farmers in the UK and Europe. We have a produce hub in Lancashire where all of our local and nationwide sourced goods from farmers and growers are collated and then delivered daily directly to our depot. From field to Caterite and to our customers in less than 24 hours, it just does not get any fresher.|
