We believe passionately that seasonal fruit and vegetables are fresher, tastier and more nutritious than out-of-season produce that has been force grown.
Reynolds’ procurement team has a wide network of growers across the world, to ensure that you have access to the freshest ingredients throughout the year.
We work closely with our networks of UK and global growers to ensure the best availability, quality, and choice from a full range of British and globally sourced produce.
Our development chefs have also been working hard to demonstrate how best to make use of seasonally available fruit and vegetables.
The Marketplace is our bi-annual report into the key issues affecting the fresh produce and dairy industries.
This publication provides an insight into the key product sectors in which we operate.
Our customers come to us for the freshest and best seasonal produce. With some varieties of fruit, vegetables and salads there is only a small window of opportunity to buy at the height of the season and availability dates change every year. It’s our job to keep you abreast of the latest seasonal choices.
At Reynolds we always try and source British produce when it’s available because we believe it’s the right thing to do.
We work closely with British growers to help support local farming and provide a sustainable UK supply base for Reynolds’ customers now and in the years to come.
Our seasonality calendar lets you know exactly where we are sourcing our fruit and vegetables from throughout the year, keeping you informed about where the produce you put on your menus is grown.
Consumers have grown to expect all year round availability of fruit and vegetables, and as one of the leading suppliers of fresh produce to the foodservice industry in the UK, it is our number one priority to work with our growers across the globe and make this a reality.
Many factors, including changes in the weather, shifts in the political climate or unforeseen natural disasters, can lead to early or late seasonal fluctuations or temporary blips in supply. Read the following reports for up-to-date information on factors affecting crops and the industry in general.
