About us - Fresh Fayre

We're not your average food supplier. We care passionately about providing our customers with artisanal and handcrafted foods that they're proud to serve. We're masters in fresh deli products, sandwiches, soups and bakery. And we don't just do drop offs, we do drop ins - which allows us to develop close relationships and truly understand our customers' needs. Like them, we take pride in our business.

Plus we are not alone, Fresh Fayre is part of the Fresh Direct family, a set of specialist brands including Fresh Direct, M&J Seafood, Wild Harvest, Fresh Fayre and Fresh Kitchen. To top it off, the Fresh Direct family is proudly part of Sysco, the world's largest food service supplier.


This is an exciting role that would suit someone who is result driven, dynamic with the ability to open doors and inspire existing customers. We think we're a great company to work for - we have a great teamwork ethic, a culture that rewards and recognises personal contribution and we offer a friendly environment to work in.
