Our Company

Fruit En-Route is a family run fruit and vegetable supplier based in the heart of Sheffield, serving and supplying the catering industry in South Yorkshire and Derbyshire.  Established in 1980 by myself, Vernon and my lovely wife Vanda, we started out with a small shop based in Broomhill.  After 10 successful years in our shop we decided to try our hand in the wholesale market, supplying the local catering trades such as pubs, restaurants, schools and shops.  We soon found that our customers needed and wanted much more than fruit and veg. ~ we moved with our customers’ needs by adding many other products such as fresh dairy, bread, herbs and many other miscellaneous items.  We have recently invested in a walk-in cold storage room stocking dairy, cheeses and deli items.

Using only locally sourced produce we pride ourselves on supplying only the highest quality goods with our first class customer service.  Now, much older than when we started in our shop, we have a team of 10 working for us.  Our son Daniel is one of our newest members of the team helping deliver orders and other day to day business jobs.

Remember, if you don’t see what you want on our website it doesn’t mean that we don’t supply it.  Please contact us and we will endeavour to get what you need, when you need it.
