Services

Food Distribution

Our distribution service is essential to the high quality service our customers have come to expect. Our warehouse has been designed to accommodate over 600 pallets of stock at any one time and orders are picked after our sales lines close, ready for delivery by 5am the next morning. Operating split compartment vehicles, we have the ability to deliver frozen, chilled and ambient products on the same vehicle – minimising our carbon footprint!

Menu Development

At Vegetarian Express we understand that your menu is critical to your business’ competitive edge, which is why our mission is to create innovative, healthy food solutions that provide our clients with a cost-effective, competitive edge to vegetarian products - a service we have been offering for over 25 years. We can enhance your services flexibility and capability to provide your vegetarian and healthy-eating customers with fresh, innovative cooking solutions.

Our proven expertise allows us to advise professional chefs, caterers and restaurateurs on how they can develop healthy, nutritious menus, including special dietary requirements such as gluten-free. We are here to help you develop menus that offer exciting flavours and stunning visual appeal, whilst delivering delicious and nutritious meat-free meals.

“Within BaxterStorey people development is key to success and Vegetarian Express embraces this, working side by side in developing our chefs”

Training

We take food safety extremely seriously. Our QA manager, Jon Divey, is qualified to train CIEH food safety courses, and we are proud to be a CIEH registered training centre.

Audited to the highest levels of standards by NSF CMi, all of our food handlers are trained in-house. CIEH level 2 in Food Safety is a minimum requirement.

"Amazing fresh spices, grains, pulses and made to order mixes, really set Vegetarian Express apart – they are the first port of call for the modern Baxterstorey chef."
