Who we are and what we do
We are a specialist food and drink importer based just outside Bath, supplying wholesalers, retailers and food manufacturers across the UK.
We are the exclusive importers for The Jackfruit Company.
“With plant-based foods high on our sustainability ethos we are always looking for new and exciting products. Jackfruit has always been a bit of a sore point and tinned products really didn’t sit well with our customers.
We were introduced to Buckley and Beale and invited them to campus to showcase their product. 100% of the tasting panel agreed that this was an amazing product and 1000% better than the squidgy tinned product.
Feedback from our customers has been extremely positive and our Pulled Jackfruit Burrito sells out every time it’s on. Would highly recommend this product.”

Bulk Jackfruit for Food Service & Manufacturing
We import and supply the highest quality jackfruit on the market, courtesy of The Jackfruit Company - the world leaders in jackfruit for retail and foodservice. Their ambient, pouched jackfruit has no added water, resulting in a product with 3 times more fibre, 3 times more protein, less waste, that's better quality and more sustainable. It also saves time and money in prep as it doesn't require draining or drying, and uses less energy. It's a single ingredient product, so has no colours, flavourings or preservatives, and is produced in a BRC Grade A factory. The darker, meatier colour comes from an exclusive retorting process, which also gives the pouches an unrivalled 18 month shelf life, with no refrigeration required. We supply wholesalers, manufacturers and caterers of all sizes.
