Fresh Produce direct to you

Through continuous growth and development, the Nationwide Group has been able to record an increase in turnover from £2.5m in 1988 to £108m currently.

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, the Fresh Produce Consortium Award, and the Sunday Times export award two years running.

“It’s taken us 40 years to pull together a team this strong. Staff motivation and wellbeing are key factors that contribute to our outstanding employee retention record. We measure average length of service as a Key Performance Indicator and I’m proud that it currently stands at 11 years.”
