Established by Graham Kington in 1989, Cream of the Crop started out as just 'A Man and his Van'. The family run company has since gone from strength to strength without ever losing sight of its main priority, the customer.

Now working closely with Premier Fruits, Cream of the Crop has a new lease of life aiming to target a more diverse and effective market concentrating on seasonal produce and educating our clients into utilising what's in season at any time.

We have several direct supply relationships with farms and farming co-operatives in the south East of England, ensuring that the best local produce is picked and packed and despatched to you- all within 24 hours.

So whether you require herbs grown especially for us in Kent, or the finest English Potatoes, or indeed Kumquats from Indonesia, you can rest assured that you'll be receiving the best produce in the world- quite literally the 'cream of the crop'.
