Here at ESC we want to change the way you think about sourcing fruit and veg. We now offer a bespoke buying service - sourcing the precise product, grade and quality that you require. We call this service 'The Very Best'. It’s like having your own buyer and van in Rungis, delivering into London every night. We also offer a weekly delivery from Milan.


As part of European Salad Company, we have access to a unique infrastructure of buying and distribution. With 'The Very Best' we have taken this a step further - using our contacts at Rungis, Milan and beyond to offer a range of the very highest quality fruit and vegetables.

You might be a retailer looking for something different to offer your customers - from a couple of trays of White Peaches to a box of Macau Artichokes. Or a chef looking for a box of Noire de Crimée tomatoes or even a bunch of Verveine. We'll happily take your order. 

Together with directors Tim and Nick, we have bought on board a Covent Garden regular, Andy Charman, to head up this unique service.

Andy says: “I purchased fresh produce for a retail company for 20 years. Whenever I visited Rungis or Milan I was amazed by the sheer quality and breadth of products available. It massively outweighs any London market. I was like a kid in a sweet shop: Gariguette and Marie de Bois strawberries; Corsican White Nectarines; tomatoes that actually tasted like tomatoes; Charentais Melons that tasted like nectar. But it was frustrating trying to find a way of accessing all the amazing produce on offer. I knew my customers would love the outstanding quality and products I just couldn’t obtain back in London.”

Place an order with us and we will have it sourced, packed and shipped into London on the same day, or shipped across on our weekly delivery from Milan.. You can either collect it that night or next morning form our base in New Covent Garden Market, or we can even arrange to bring it to you.

If you would like to speak to enquire about a product, or receive a list of what products are currently available in Rungis, then please give Andy a call on 07810 504512, or email
