Our growers

At Reynolds we work extremely closely with our growers. We get involved in every aspect of the food production and distribution process, from seed planting through to produce transportation and final delivery.

Our supplier relationships are based on long-term partnerships. We know this is the best way to ensure food security for ourselves and our customers, as well as the consistent quality and availability that Reynolds is best known for.

Our growers are based all around the world. This means we can buy the best quality seasonal produce when it’s available to ensure consistent quality and availability all year round.

We always buy the very best fresh produce and, whenever we can, we buy British. You can check out our current list of home grown produce for latest seasonal availability.
