For quality, for perfection, for our attention to detail. We’ve built a successful and sustainable British business which is unique. We control every step in our supply chain to deliver the best British apples and pears. A short, sustainable and healthy British supply chain, feeding the nation every day of the year.


No gimmicks, we are data driven, optimising digital technology every day across every aspect of our business. Modern, sustainable and proven methods which enable us to grow, pick, store, pack, deliver and trace every single piece of fruit we supply to supermarkets across the UK.


Established in 1947 by Arthur and Phyllis Goatham.

With immense pride, care and lots of hard work, we started traditions that are carried on today: traditions of local, long-term and fair partnerships.
