Coupled with an extensive knowledge of packers and producers around the world we at Zenith are extremely proud of our no nonsense approach to supplying an extensive range of fresh produce on time and on budget.

Our approach is a simple one but is fairly unique in the produce world. We see the supply concept through the eyes of our customer before our own. We are proud that our “initiation” in the fresh produce world came from the hectic foodservice supply market and as such we have insight into what matters to our foodservice customers.

Now in its sixth year the Zenith of today looks much different to its first incarnation. Through constant reinvestment in our facilities, infrastructure and people we have created an ideal environment to cope with the fast paced world of fresh produce supplies.

We use the most up to date IT, along with temperature controlled storage coupled with our own in house quality manual.

Zenith has a firm commitment towards looking after our environment. Wherever possible we will reduce food miles to a minimum by holding stock in the most efficient location around the country.

Our depot in Evesham builds consolidated orders to our customers requirement but we also hold bulk containerised produce with our accredited distributer IDS or air freighted products at our clearing agents at Heathrow to speed up delivery and reduce food miles.

Zenith always ensures that our service partners work to the same exacting standards that we subscribe to.

 

“Zenith look after some of my most volatile products yet provide me with the least hassle. Whenever we discuss something I know they will do what they say they will.

Its refreshing that the Zenith approach is to make sure they supply first and tell me about the problems later.”

Our People

Jason Powell

Jason began his career working in prepared veg in Bradford in the 1980s mainly supplying schools contracts. From there he worked in Bradford market where he cut his teeth in the emerging exotics market, although early mornings where not his favourite! From there he joined Darren at Ripon based Specialist Foods Supplies who focused on the very best of fine dining in the North of England. Jason worked in every area of the business at all hours of the day. It was at Specialist Foods that Jason truly felt the pain needed to graduate from the Foodservice school of hard knocks! Moving back into wholesale Jason successfully majored in European imports as well as building an impressive portfolio of customers throughout the UK.

 

“I have worked closely with Zenith for 5 years now and value their straight forward approach and professionalism. It’s becoming more difficult to find suppliers who truly understand Food Service but the team at Zenith certainly tick the box!”

 

Ken Mortimer | MD, 5aDay Box Ltd.

“I met Zenith during the Fruit Logistica 2011, when we were just starting our exporting business and they were one of our first customers and the very first in the UK. Zenith focus on an honest relationship with their customers and suppliers and are on a consistent search for good quality and new products to their line…”
