Bettaveg was set up in 2002 by our Managing Director, Mandy. Mandy has been in the fresh produce sector all of her life, as her Dad, Lawrence Liptrott, dominated the industry throughout her childhood & early adulthood.
What started off as a small team of 4 has gone from strength to strength over the years. We now have a team of 30+ staff & a fleet of vans delivering to a multitude of clients over the North West; ranging from schools & universities, to restaurants & hotels, to football clubs & catering companies. We cater for all!
We are now big enough to handle anything that comes our way, while still maintaining the personal, caring touch a family business should have. On this premise, we were awarded the ‘Best Fresh Produce Supplier in England’ award. We have the highest level of BRC accreditation with an AA grade.
Primarily, we supply fresh fruit and veg, including our own prepared fruit, vegetables and juices, which are all prepared in house, allowing us to meet exact customer specifications. However, as we have grown over the years we have dramatically expanded our product range to include an abundance of dry and luxury dry goods, breads, dairy & more. We now like to consider ourselves a one stop shop for our customers!
We offer weekly and monthly specials and a buyers' report to ensure our customers are kept up-to-date about produce, whether sourced locally or from our suppliers across the globe. We have total confidence in both our product & service. For us, quality & service is prioritised over price, as so eloquently put by Sir Henry Royce, ‘The quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten’.
The Coronavirus outbreak has had serious implications on our business, with 90% of our customers shutting their doors overnight. Given this, and seeing the number of vulnerable people out there having no means of getting food delivered, we decided to switch up our whole business model to accommodate the consumer, by offering a home delivery service. This was by no means an easy change for us, we do not have the operational systems in place that the supermarkets have, but the overwhelmingly positive feedback we have received has made the long hours, the sleepless nights & the stress, all worthwhile.
Thank you so much for your continued support, it has enabled us to remain open and continue to supply to our customers that need our essential service, like hospitals, care homes & critical workplaces. Together we will get through this.
