We have been wholesaling Cornish shellfish since our business started way back in the 1950's. We regard a wholesale customer as a trading business, working seasonally or year round, in the UK or EU, working from a mobile van(s) or fixed premises such as other Wholesalers / Trading companies, Public Houses, Restaurants, Cafes and Hotels etc. Quantities for collection range from 5 Kg and for delivery from 25 Kg, in combinations of single and or multiple product types, in live and or cooked/ processed products. For credit account customers, character and finance references are strictly required, along with satisfactory credit agency checks. "Receipt of funds before despatch" terms are offered to new and infrequent customers. Electronic, debit or credit card payments are preferred.
WHOLESALE CUSTOMER DEVELOPMENT
W. Harvey & Sons Shellfish Merchants, with 60 years experience in the Shellfish Industry, are committed to looking after and helping our customers, who we regard as an extension of our business. A simple quality threshold is operated: if we aren't happy enough to take our products home ourselves we will not sell them. A range of live, fresh cooked, cooked and pasteurised, frozen and customisable products are sold to suit all needs and price points.
Paul, Julian and Matthew Harvey main tasks are managing their wholesale customers. New customers are inducted into the order, production and delivery process, they check products are suitable for customers and offer alternatives. Regular contacts are made to build up a picture of each of our customers, we like to give the personal touch.
