History
Established in 1998 under the name Fruit and Veg Direct, we are one of Adelaide’s original fruit and veg home delivery businesses. We began with the philosophy of delivering fruit and veg that was unbeatable in quality and literaly farm fresh, direct to the homes of our customers.
We still hold that value today, with every fruit and veg box being sourced either direct from the farmer or the Adelaide produce market on the same day you receive it.
In the early years before buying on the internet was mainstream, most of our orders were taken by phone, a few by email, and the really organised would hand in their next week's order-form upon delivery of the last! Our delivery region at that time ranged from the southern suburbs of Adeliade through to the south coast of the Fleurieu.
With the launch of our first online store in 2004 new customers from all corners of Adelaide were able to find us and our delivery region expanded. Also  expanding was our product range to include complimentary gourmet products.
