WHOLESALE ORDERS

W. Harvey & Sons has been wholesaling Cornish shellfish since the business started way back in 1955. We regard a wholesale customer as a trading business, be it working seasonally or all-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 range from 5kg for collection and 25kg for delivery, in combinations of single and or multiple product types, 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.

DEVELOPMENT

Committed to looking after and helping our customers

W. Harvey & Sons Shellfish Merchants, with over 65 years of experience in the Shellfish Industry, are committed to looking after and helping our customers. We regard them 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.

Company directors Julian, Matthew and William Harvey see their main task as managing their wholesale customers. New customers are inducted into the order, production and delivery process. They check the products are suitable for customers and offer alternatives. Regular contact is made to build up a profile of each of our customers, the products they like and how their business operates. We like to give the personal touch and treat our wholesale customers as we like to be treated.
