We are an award-winning Fine Food Distributor. We deliver ambient and chilled speciality, artisan foods covering the majority of the UK.

The Company started in 2004 with a small lock up and a second-hand van working with only five or six Scottish fine food manufacturers. Fast forward to today, where we work with hundreds of fine food manufacturers and now have 5 depots across the UK.

We have been voted Top Distributor in the UK by Fine Food Digest 6 years in a row and we couldn't have done it without our hard-working team!

You will be joining the business at an exciting time as we have just acquired Adamsons Soft Drinks, a Scottish based soft drink wholesale business, and have opened our fourth depot in England.

There are roles of various levels available throughout all departments with specific jobs advertised on Indeed. As our business expands, we are always looking to recruit the best staff to join our Cress Co team. Experience is not always essential as training and support will be provided so you can hit the ground running in your new role.
