Local Eateries

JR Holland is one of the leading purveyors of food for local eateries in the North East. As a long established, trusted independent business we have become the go to commercial food supplier and deli food supplier within the local area, and continue to deliver our customers with our promise of quality products.

Our premium fresh produce is obtained for a selection of hand-picked suppliers across the United Kingdom and beyond, to bring the very best cuisine, that your local area has to offer. As the oldest, established importers and distributors of chilled, fresh produce in the North East of England, we have a level of experience and expertise you will not find elsewhere. We have built up a strong customer network within the local food sector in the North East and now supply a range of local, independent eateries.

Better produce, better product

As a privately owned, independent business, we like to focus on supplying other local, independently owned businesses, including eateries within the North East. As one of the top deli food suppliers in the region, we are dedicated to sourcing premium local ingredients to ensure our success as an essential food partner to restaurants, hotels, pubs, bars and contact caterers.


As independent food supply specialists we are well versed in the need for deli food supplies in the local area and how important supporting a local food chain is. Now more than ever, there’s a huge focus on sustainability, healthy eating and supporting locally sourced suppliers. Therefore, there are a number of major benefits for local eateries to choose a local supplier like JR Holland. Nationwide or global food chains can have a detrimental impact on the local economy, therefore, we have seen this growing trend and commitment to local food chains. Locally sourced food can have a wide variety of benefits including improved quality, price, convenience, and customer appeal.


If you are an independent eatery in the North of England looking for deli food supplies, JR Holland can help bring you locally sourced produce that will ensure we can form a partnership working in unison to support our local economy.

Delivery to your Kitchen

Here at JR Holland, much of our agenda when supplying catering facilities, is focussed upon sourcing local, British and seasonal produce. Not only do we value the vitality of supporting local suppliers, but locally sourced produce also fosters a better outcome for our customers in enabling them to serve food that quite literally goes from plough to plate. Fresh, seasonal produce gives vibrancy and taste to a dish and finding a supplier who shares this agenda will ultimately improve your cuisine. What’s more, this also gives you the opportunity to change your menu in line with our seasonal produce, and use this as inspiration for new dishes. Click here to see our seasonality calendar.


Staying local will bring direct benefits to your independent eatery as it will enable you to become part of a network of local growers who will provide higher-quality, fresher ingredients to your menu. This will ultimately have a positive customer impact and engender positive perception of your business using locally grown produce when marketing your product. As part of our focus upon produce that comes from plough to plate, you will also join us in working to reduce food miles as locally sourced produce cuts transport times, costs, and the general environmental impact of the distribution of food.


Of course, be aware that with exotic varieties of produce it is not always possible to source locally. However, in these instances, we are committed to working directly with farmers from the developing world and supporting advancing economies.

From plough to plate

JR Holland understands that great food needs great ingredients. If you want to make the most out of your menu, you need ingredients to help you do so and we are here to supply them. That is why our customers repeatedly come back to us, because of the honest and genuine adoption of our total quality assurance policy. If you are a workplace caterer looking for top-quality food products we have an array of produce to fulfil the needs and requirements of your business.


Alongside quality, we know the importance of convenience and that is why we offer a full range of pre-prepared fruit and vegetable produce to save you time peeling and preparing produce in the kitchen. For our full prepared product list click here. In addition to prepared fruit and vegetable produce we also stock an array of additional catering essentials from dairy, pantry/dry goods, and canned food to bakery products, cheese, meets, herbs and eggs.
