All of us at Mr. Fruity are extremely humbled and honoured to have been nominated for the Norfolk Food & Drink Hero award. We never thought twice about our home deliveries way back in March. It was a unanimous decision. A jump in at the deep end and swim decision. The main reason behind it, was not even a business one, it was getting fresh produce to people who needed it. People who were stuck at home, self-isolating, shielding and unable to fend for themselves.
We had vans available and a warehouse full of products that needed a home, and so started our home delivery service. It was difficult at first as the business model had not been planned or rehearsed, we just had to apply what we knew about fresh produce supply to a now, non-existent catering trade and use it to deliver to the doorstep.
As time has moved on, we’ve worked with our new customer base, to try and supply things that are needed, such as kitchen towel, vinyl gloves, washing up liquid and wholefoods, all on top of milk, bread, cheese and yogurts.
The response from our home delivery customers has been overwhelming and all of us here, at Mr. Fruity, really appreciate all the positive feedback and comments that you’ve given us. To be nominated for this award, means a great deal and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
