If you’ve ever attempted it, you’ll know that the commute from Bicester to Scotland is far from a short drive down the road… That’s why in 2008 we teamed-up with a brilliant local fresh food supplier to create Fresh Direct Glasgow!
Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland boasting a population of 1.2 million within the Greater Glasgow area. In fact, this places Glasgow as the 4th largest city in the UK! Situated on the River Clyde and not all that far from the sea, Glasgow was most notably built on the shipbuilding and marine engineering industries, with some of those businesses still hammering away today.
Our Glasgow site gave Fresh Direct the ability to supply all of Scotland – from local, independent restaurants and pubs to our nationally-operating customers with outlets throughout the major Scottish cities.
The depot has a 15,000sqft refrigerated warehouse – set on 100 acres of working farmland by the way – which is loaded with thousands of tonnes of fresh food. Some of this food is even grown onsite on Barnhill Farm, including (believe it or not) Scottish asparagus!
