Description of franchise system

Eating fresh

Riverford Organic Vegetables delivers fresh, organic produce to local people by the most direct route possible. We grow and deliver fresh, award-winning organic veg and fruit boxes directly from farmers to homes all over the United Kingdom. Our box concept in a organic farm in Devon. Even though the demand for our food boxes grew continuously, we wanted to stay on our original farm.

This is why we decided to partner with other organic farms who share our passion for affordable, fresh and delicious organic foods. Our local sister farms support us in keeping miles low, providing local jobs and help Riverford to build strong relationships between consumers and grower.

We have five farms around the country, helping us to keep our food miles down. We think about how all the decisions we make affect the environment, including everything from the type of packaging we use to the most energy efficient way of using our fridges.

Franchise concept

Delivering organic vegs and fruits

With consumers’ increasing interest about knowing how and where their food is produced, Riverford’s franchisees are a valued and vital link between consumers and the farm. We need franchisees to deliver organic products from local farms to customers directly. Franchisees are more than just delivery people.

You will manage your own territory, care for your local clients and provide a personalized link and service to your farm that just can’t be found in a supermarket. Our franchisees deliver a friendly, reliable service to thousands of households around the UK each week and sell a whole range of fresh organic foods – from fruit to meat, eggs and wine – as extras to the vegetable boxes.

Despite the common preconception that organic is expensive, Riverford vegboxes are around 20% cheaper than that of supermarket organic ranges – and the fruit and veg is much tastier and fresher too! When you have completed your training, you will be able to talk confidently about the box scheme and organic food production. This is very important; customers appreciate the connection with the farm that their vegman/lady provides.

The farm offers its franchisees unlimited support and its growing size means sharing systems and ideas is easy. We won’t just provide all the training, development and mentoring that you’ll need though. We’re prepared to back you financially too, with a generous loan that’ll help get your new business off the ground and working capital to help you grow.
