Based in Dunfermline, Fife we distribute ambient and chilled speciality, artisan foods across the UK using our own fleet of dual temperature (ambient/chilled) vehicles. We are proud to supply a range of independent retail customers including delis, cafés, farm shops, garden centres, butchers, fishmongers, bars and hotels.
The company started in 2004 with a small lock up and a second-hand van working with five or six Scottish fine food manufacturers who were looking for better distribution throughout Scotland. As the business, grew we opened additional depots in Wetherby, Leighton Buzzard and Telford and now offer national distribution.
The Cress Co. now operates from a 78,000 sqft unit in Dunfermline and works with hundreds of fine food manufacturers distributing thousands of different products. We are members of the Farm Retail Association and are keen to support both independent manufacturers and retailers. We pride ourselves on looking after our customers and ensuring we listen and adapt to their needs because without them we wouldn’t be here.
Once again, we are absolutely delighted to have been voted Top Distributor 2020 by the members of the Guild of Fine Food for the 4th consecutive year. This is a UK wide survey of deli’s & farmshops and distributors are scored on service, range, pricing and more.
