New Member: H F Produce Ltd – Specialising in Prepared Vegetables and Building Industry Knowledge
It is with great pleasure that we announce H F Produce Ltd as a Member of MDS!
We spoke to their Sales and Production Manager- Elizabeth Oatey, who highlighted how the business plies its trade so successfully and why MDS was right for them.
Who are H F Produce?
We are suppliers of prepared vegetables to bakeries, wholesale suppliers and the catering industry. Situated at Antony on the Rame Peninsula in South East Cornwall, H F Produce is a leading force in the production, procurement and sale of fresh top quality prepared vegetables. Prepared vegetables include potatoes, onion, swede and other vegetables washed, trimmed, peeled, diced or sliced as required. H F Produce in particular, is renowned for the freshness of its prepared onions which are peeled daily on our modern peeling lines for customers in the South West. We can offer a ‘just in time’ chilled delivery service to bakeries needing bulk quantities. Our washed and peeled vegetables can be prepared and delivered within twenty four hours of ordering where this is important for continuous production. H F Produce sources the majority of its vegetables from Cornwall where the mild maritime climate has significant advantages over other growing areas in the UK. Our own farms produce potatoes, swede and onions in South East Cornwall and we have established links with other growers locally and nationally who grow produce specifically for us.
H F Produce has many company values which we encourage all employees to engage in and follow regardless of their role, namely:
We believe these values positively contribute to the workplace culture for employees but also the way in which we deliver to our customers.
Life with H F Produce Ltd

We are always looking to expand and improve on what we do, welcoming new ideas and strategies, allowing employees to build their own career path with support and guidance.

We joined MDS to recruit like-minded individuals who have a passion for agriculture, fresh produce and food production. We have a number of exciting projects on the horizon and we are looking for people who can implement a variety of new systems and lead on projects.
