Richard Hochfeld Ltd sources, imports, packs and supplies fresh fruits to Tesco.


The company was founded in 1937 and has been supplying Tesco with fresh produce since the 1970s.

'We aim to reduce waste at all possible points, including use of waste heat from one of our coldstorage plants to heat the water then used by staff. Rain water from the roofs is also captured and used to irrigate the neighbouring farm crops. Additionally, we have solar panels on our largest coldstore to capture Kent sunshine.'

In 2017 Richard Hochfeld Ltd made a commitment to reduce food waste in their own operations by 50% by 2030.
