General public collections

County Foods operates a delivery service to hundreds of customers over an area of around 1000 square miles, 6 days a week. We operate from our busy sales office on site in Poole and have recently extended our services to the provision of a Saturday shop, open to members of the public every week from 9am – 1pm.

We have recently advertised the option of collecting orders from our premises during the office opening hours; however we have now recognised that this is causing disruption to our daily service. In light of this, we would kindly request a £30 minimum order from customers that are coming to collect from us.

We hope that you understand, and we welcome you to pre-order for collection from our Saturday shop. To do so please call 01202 440900 before midnight on Friday so we can have your order processed and ready.

Regards

County Foods

Customer Testimonials

County foods and the RNLI training college (Aramark Catering) have been working hand in hand for several years, I feel that County foods has provided the RNLI with an excellent level of service and support “nothing is too much” whilst at all times supplying us with as much locally sourced and high quality products as possible. County Foods clearly has a very strong commitment to customer care and I find that the people in the office are always really helpful!
