Effective from November 1st, Classic Fresh Foods and Rushton’s: The Chefs’ Greengrocer, have merged and will trade under the name of Rushton’s: The Chefs’ Greengrocer. The combined business is trading out of units 111-116 in the recently completed Distribution Block A
Both businesses had been running side by side within the Thorogood Group with very similar values for the past two years, so there will be very few changes now that they are operating as one. Rushton’s: The Chefs’ Greengrocer will continue to be owned by the shareholders of S Thorogood & Sons, just as both Classic and Rushton’s were.
“We are delighted to unite two strong fresh produce suppliers within London’s iconic New Covent Garden Market,” said group Managing Director Andrew Thorogood. “We felt it would be clearer for customers and suppliers for us to be trading under one name and with the redevelopment of New Covent Garden Market and our new warehouse we felt this is the prime time to merge as one.”
