The Cress Company

Wholesaler, Distributor, in Dunfermline & West Fife

The Cress Company regards itself as a small business where everyone knows everyone, and it now has a team of 50 people.

Based in Dunfermline, with another depot in Yorkshire, the company distributes food to mainland Scotland and is rolling out new delivery areas across England using its own fleet of dual temperature (ambient/chilled) vehicles. It delivers outside this area via a third party.

The Cress Company supplies goods from high quality producers to customers including delis, cafes, farm shops and hotels.

As a member of both the Guild of Fine Foods and Farma, the company is keen to support both independent manufacturers and retailers.

The company was started in 2004 by Joe Wall, and with a 30sqm lock up and a second-hand van he worked with five or six Scottish fine food manufacturers who were looking for better distribution throughout Scotland.

As the business grew there was increasing interest from other manufacturers who were keen to work with the Cress Co, including those based in England and further afield.

Through a combination of hard work, customer service (and a bit of luck) the business has continued to grow and relocated twice. In 2008 it moved from Perth to a 1000sqm unit in Dunfermline. This has allowed the company to increase our lines, improve distribution and now to add chilled product distribution.
