About Cress

No1 distributor17 20

Once again, we are absolutely delighted to have been voted Top Distributor 2020 by the members of the Guild of Fine Food for the 4th consecutive year. This is a UK wide survey of deli’s & farmshops and distributors are scored on service, range, pricing etc.

We pride ourselves on looking after our customers and delivering excellent customer service. Everyone at Cress works hard to ensure this from processing and picking orders to delivery and invoicing. Many thanks to all our customers who voted for us.

Based in Dunfermline, Fife we distribute ambient and chilled speciality, artisan foods across the UK using our own fleet of dual temperature (ambient/chilled) vehicles. We are proud to supply a range of independent retail customers including delis, cafés, farm shops, butchers, fishmongers, bars and hotels.

The company started in 2004 with a small lock up and a second-hand van working with five or six Scottish fine food manufacturers who were looking for better distribution throughout Scotland. As the business grew we opened two additional depots in Wetherby and Milton Keynes and now offer national distribution.

The Cress Co. now operates from a 25000 sqft unit in Dunfermline and works with hundreds of fine food manufacturers distributing thousands of different products. We are members of the Guild of Fine Foods and Farma and are keen to support both independent manufacturers and retailers. We pride ourselves on looking after our customers and ensuring we listen and adapt to their needs because without them we wouldn't be here.

There are no industry trade shows running in 2021. As soon as this changes we'll let you know.

Here at Cress we value our staff and strive to provide a positive, friendly, hardworking atmosphere.
