Two independent wholesale companies in Bristol have joined forces to launch a new next day delivery service during the coronavirus crisis.
Meat Hook and Total Produce have come together to deliver high quality meat and fruit and veg while major supermarkets are swamped with requests, leading to lengthy waiting times for shoppers after they place an order online.
People can order meat boxes containing beef, chicken, bacon and more from the long-running, family-run business, which supplies restaurants including Birch, Taka Taka and The Eastfield Inn, for £30.
If they like they can also add veg boxes from Total Produce to their order for an additional £25, which include essentials like bread and milk alongside a range of fresh fruit and veg.
Delivered the day after ordering, the two boxes combined, priced at £55 with no delivery fee, provide enough supplies for two people for at least one week, said Meat Hook manager Anthony Coletto.
Total Produce owner Phil Nichols said: “Since the government instructed everyone who can to stay at home, we have been inundated with requests for home deliveries of fresh fruit and vegetables.
“Our business has had to adapt like many others, servicing the care sector and NHS has become our main focus so we have limited resources to fulfil all of the home delivery requests.
“Being able to team up with local businesses in a position to offer home deliveries means that together we can ensure our local communities can stay safe at home with access to fresh produce for their families.”
To order either the meat box on its own or the package containing both boxes, call Meat Hook on 01179 820270.
