about

Fresh Produce direct to you

Established as Bernard O’Malley & Co in 1975, Nationwide started life as a Lancashire produce merchant based in Southport. Today, we are one of the largest produce companies in Europe. The opening of the Spalding office in 1988 coincided with a change of name to Nationwide Produce PLC and the establishment of Richmond Farms.

Through continuous growth and development, the Nationwide Group has been able to record an increase in turnover from €2.5m in 1988 to €110m.

Along the way the Group has won many accolades including the Independent newspaper award three years running as one of the fastest growing companies in the UK, and the Sunday Times export award two years in a row.

Today Nationwide Produce is one of the largest and most diverse produce companies in Europe with interests in all sectors of the fresh produce industry. The business has stayed in the family throughout the years, though, and continues to supply ingredients with our core values in mind.

Those core values are our commitment to providing exceptional produce and ingredients, and passing that quality on to our customers and clients no matter what sector of the food industry they’re working in.

And we’ve only grown as much as we can because of the strong relationships we’ve built and kept with growers, clients, importers and exporters, and many other people within the industry who have bought into our philosophy and want nothing but the best.

The company continues to expand its operations and is constantly looking for fresh opportunities and further growth as we look to provide our clients with the finest ingredients across the globe.
