About us

True to our roots, wherever possible much of what you find in our business
has come straight from the region's farmers and growers
a good guarantee that it's going to taste great.

Over 25 years ago, we founded a business selling high quality fresh, seasonal produce from a small warehouse in Bolton.

Our vision was simple: to supply the very best produce from around the world to chefs in hotels and restaurants throughout the UK.

Over the years we have built up a fantastic team of passionate people to help us to deliver our vision and we are proud to say that we now work with some of the very best growers from around the world.

From our centre of operations in Bradford and Hoddesdon, we serve customers both locally and nationally through a series of strategically situated distribution hubs.

Our modern and efficient fully temperature-controlled warehouse provides ideal storage conditions so that we can maintain the 'field fresh' condition that our customers demand. Our sites are BRC accredited, offering further reassurance of our quality processes.

We constantly review our processes and this continual improvement program has led to recent investments right across the business, enabling us to offer our customers an even better service.

Growing Relationships

Our work at Oliver Kay Produce is all about nurturing close relationships between our growers and customers.

We talk to our farmers daily in order to source the best value products as soon as they come into season. We can then react to the needs of our customers and get them the best produce when it’s at its freshest.

The close relationships we have with our farmers, many of whom have grown alongside us from day one, gives us access to the best of their crop at their very best prices. And the close relationships we have with our customers means we’re always on the lookout for something new.

Seasonal Tastes - Delivering Food at its Best

We passionately believe that food in season is food at its most delicious.

Working with our buyers and growers, we compile concise and informative Crop Reports to help you make the most of the produce that’s coming into season next and when you can expect it.

If there’s a shortage, whether, through disease or environmental issues, we’ll keep you in the loop and let you know which products and varieties to avoid. It’s all part of the service.

 

Working Together

The fresh produce business is managed independently by the Oliver Kay team and continues to supply independent and national customers around the UK. Oliver Kay continues to sit within Bidfresh, sister company to Bidfood, offering financial security and reassurance to customers. 
 
In 2020, Oliver Kay moved their head office from Bolton to Bradford, with additional sites in Hoddesdon, Cannock and Bonnyrigg, enabling full coverage of the UK. As fresh produce supplier of choice for Bidfood, moving to an existing Bidfood depot provided the business with national fresh delivery capabilities on a daily basis.
 
Bidfresh Limited was created in 2010 when Bidvest (a public owned business in South Africa) purchased Seafood Holdings Limited in the UK.  Bidvest saw the benefits in the model adopted by Seafood Holdings and decided to create similar businesses in meat and produce. In 2012 Bidfresh acquired Oliver Kay. Bidvest unbundled its food service assets on 30th May 2016 into Bidcorp Limited which is listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. Bidcorp Limited's (‘Bidcorp’) listing provides shareholders with the opportunity to participate directly in Bidcorp’s foodservice operations as well as enabling the business to achieve its strategic goals. Bidfresh has since acquired a number of businesses in meat and produce across the UK.
