Foodservice wholesale buying group Country Range has a new member – Harvest Fine Foods.
A successful wholesaler operating in South England (Dorset, Hampshire and Sussex), Harvest will now have access to the Country Range own-brand and the group’s K2N nutritional software as a support tool for caterers.
Coral Rose, managing director of Country Range, said she was “delighted” to welcome Harvest into the group: “Harvest is a highly successful company with great integrity and professionalism,” she added. “They are experiencing great growth and we look forward to boosting this further by increasing Harvest’s buying and selling power while giving catering customers added value.”
Richard Strongman, owner and MD of Harvest Fine Foods, said the partnership would help the business continue to source quality products at competitive prices for customers. “The Country Range [own-brand] portfolio, in particular, offers an extensive range of ambient, chilled and frozen lines with affordable pricing, but more importantly, a quality product, tested to the highest standards,” he said. “Country Range is a brand we can trust and be proud of, which will also sit well within our current range.
“We look forward to bringing our customers the great benefits associated with the Country Range Group, and to continue building on our successes.”
Harvest was formerly a member of the Sterling group.
