A Bit About Us...

Established in 2008, Zenith International Produce operates from our purpose built, fully refrigerated warehouse facility in Evesham, where we fulfil consolidated orders to bespoke customer requirements.
Fresh, Consistant Quality

At Zenith International Produce, we partner with the most professional and forward thinking growers around the world, to deliver you the very best fresh produce available.

Using bespoke fresh produce software, we have the facility to hold stock in multiple locations, whether that be port of entry, airport of various distribution points around the UK.

This allows us to reduce handling, food miles and also costs - ensuring we have the most cost effective delivered product.

Zenith always ensures that our service partners work to the same exacting standards that we subscribe to.

Our People

At Zenith International Produce we treat the team like family, and not just because several of them are actually family! Get to know the team a little better below…

Darren Powell

With a proud heritage in food service, Darren looks after the backroom stuff at Zenith. With overall responsibility for systems management, accounts, technical and strategy there aren’t many things he doesn’t have his nose in!

Craig Woodburn

Craig is a northern lad but found himself in Evesham specialising in Fresh Produce. Craig has developed an impressive range of customers and a wide range of contacts which helps underpin Zenith’s commitment to consistency.

Jason Powell

Jason’s career has seen him move from food service into wholesale and imports, which gives him a unique 360 view of the whole supply chain. Looking after a range of high profile customers, Jason ensures we deliver what we say we will!

Stuart Manning

Stuart has a wealth of experience in importing fresh produce. As one of the pioneers in importing from Africa, Stuart has helped to refine one of the most difficult supply chains into a reliable, consistent process. His can-do attitude makes him a perfect fit at Zenith!

Lindsay Powell

What Lindsay doesn’t know about Zenith is probably not worth knowing! With years of experience in chilled produce warehousing and quality control, Lindsay underpins just about every critical system. Lindsay oversees the Quality Manual and maintains the Zenith standard.

Jamie Thomson

Along with Lindsay, Jamie takes care of all things involving warehousing and distribution. Jamie’s career has been fresh produce all the way so he really has been there, seen it, done it! Jamie’s experience is critical to the operation and we really couldn’t do it without him!

“Zenith look after some of my most volatile products yet provide me with the least hassle. Whenever we discuss something I know they will do what they say they will. It’s refreshing that the Zenith approach is to make sure they supply first and tell me about the problems later.”

Lee Callon
Bid Food Head of Buying, Fresh Produce

I have worked closely with Zenith for over 10years now and value their straight forward approach and professionalism. It’s becoming more difficult to find suppliers who truly understand Food Service but the team at Zenith certainly tick the box! Very highly recommended.
