Who are The Veg Box Company?

Hi and welcome to The Veg Box Company.

Where did it all start?

It all started with a few humble seeds that grow into lots of delicious, fresh and tasty fruit and Vegetables, that then make their way to your plate. That sounds so simple doesn’t? Well, that’s where it gets a little complicated and all is not as simple as it seems.

It’s nice to meet you…

My name is Guy, I was born into a well known farming family in rural Lancashire. The Farm has grown several different crops over the years,  but currently specialise in strawberries and iceberg lettuce. As you can imagine I have grown a taste for fresh fruit and vegetables over the years, but every time I go shopping in the supermarkets I always end up asking myself one simple question. How fresh really is the fruit and veg that we see on the supermarket shelves? Answer… It’s not as fresh as the supermarkets would like us all to think it is. From the produce leaving the farm to getting onto the supermarket shelf, it can take up to 48 hours and in many cases even longer. After that, it could have been sat there for a further 3 days before you even put it into your basket. Ever wondered why the fruit and veg you buy from a supermarket perish so quickly?

It doesn’t seem right that we as the customer are not getting the freshest and tastiest veg that we can so with this in mind, I decided to launch The Veg Box Company. Here at The Veg Box Company, we believe that getting the freshest, tastiest and most delicious fruit, veg and salad should be simple. It is our passion to make sure that we deliver the best fruit and vegetables right to your door.  We buy directly from the farms local to ourselves including using the family farms own produce. Some items do come from further afield as we find that the climate in Lancashire isn’t quite right to grow bananas.

We like to keep it Local…

A lot of the fruit veg and salad items will still have been growing on the day we pack your box. All boxes are then delivered within 24 hours. If you are lucky enough to live in our local area your box will be delivered within 6 hours of it being packed. You won’t get fresher Fruit, Veg or Salad unless you pick it yourself. We also want to do our bit for the environment and work hard with our suppliers to reduce and eliminate the need for single use plastic.
