Country Fares Vision is to be the
Supplier of Choice and Employer of Choice.
We aim to achieve this Vision through our Core Values.
We started Country Fare from small beginnings back in 2004, with a small team delivering fresh produce to the local area. We didn’t know much back then! But we were armed with a close-knit team, a passion for food, and a desire to go above and beyond in discovering new ways to move forward.
16 years later, we have seen amazing growth, with the privilege of becoming one of the major foodservice suppliers for South England. It’s been a great adventure, and a joy to see many of our local suppliers step out and flourish in their endeavours.
For us, we’ve learnt a lot along the way, but our love for our team, our passion for food, and our desire to go above and beyond are more than ever. We believe good food can bring real joy; and though we may just be a foodservice company, we believe we can make a difference in the world.
That is why we’re strong on our core values; that is why our motto is ‘Fresh Thinking’ – and that is why we can confidently commend ourselves to work alongside your business.

At Country Fare we believe that ethical business practice and positively impacting the community is more important than our bottom line.
That is why we will never change in our commitment to environmental protection, sustainability, and supporting local producers.
Our Environmental Policy
Country Fare is committed to limiting the negative effect of all its operations on the environment. This is achieved by:
Liasing with our suppliers and growers to ensure their practices comply with our aims.
Running our warehouse in an energy efficient way.
Recycling of packaging materials.
Keeping produce wastage to a minimum.
Maintaining our vehicle fleet and training drivers well, paying particular attention to fuel economy.
Encouraging our customers to order produce that is in season, and actively discouraging the use of fuel-costly air-freighted items.

Our Work in the Community
Some of greatest joy has been in having the opportunity to work alongside courageous charities and organisations that are genuinely changing lives.
Through these connections, we currently help supply food for the homeless and support a feeding scheme for vulnerable families.
We also work with a charity based in Uganda, supporting local coffee-growers and a local school.
