Our History

We've grown, changed, developed and are now one of the best at what we do...

 

When Jonathan Parker left his job as director of a London legal publishing business, he did not think that his new business would grow to supply food to some of the finest restaurants in the UK. However, that is exactly what has been acheived by Foodari since its launch in May 2007.

The business has changed and developed since the early days, but has always been underpinned by a love of all things local, British, fresh and tasty. With a passion for food, agriculture and eating, developing a business that linked these areas together seemed natural.

We are honoured to have received a Royal Warrant of Appointment to His Royal Highness Prince Charles for the supply of fruit and vegetables! This amazing endorsement follows many years of consistent quality service to the Royal Household. We have always believed that what we do is unique and superior, receiving this honour speaks volumes.

 

“We are all over the moon to receive a Royal Warrant for the services that we provide. It is truly a team effort, not only for all at Foodari but all of those involved in the supply chain…from our brilliant farmers to those driving our vans. When I started the business 15 years ago I couldn’t imagine that we would one day receive this prestigious accolade. We are all loving it and will celebrate in style!” Jonathan


Jonathan has not done all of this on his own. Since Foodari's conception, his brother Tom has brought the real farming experience and father Chris has managed the numbers. With the addition of buying expertise, you have a senior management team that now drives the business forward. 

 

"We want you to be as passionate and as excited about our produce as we are"

Jonathan Parker, Managing Director
