We are hiring drivers 19/05/2016, Jobs

Love food? Want to work in sustainability? Come and join the fresh-range team in Bristol & Bath...

We are reinventing food shopping. By sourcing food directly from award winning producers in Somerset and Gloucestershire we reduce food miles and eliminate the need for days or weeks of haulage and storage. Most of the food we sell is baked, caught, cooked, cut, laid, picked or produced just before being delivered to customers’ kitchens. Fresher food means better tasting food and richer nutritional value.

With a purpose of creating exceptional food shopping experiences and creating food security for generations to come, we produce happy customers and happy producers with happy team members. We seek individuals who pride themselves on their commitment, innovation, cooperation and honesty to join our team.
