Hull Based Organics Delivery Firm Launches Online Service

The Award Winning Arthur St Trading Co launches an order and pay on-line facility and increased organic vegetable range to cope with local demand.

Hull, 25th September 2008 – Hull based co-operative, Arthur St Trading Company today launched an on-line payment and ordering service for their popular organic vegetable box delivery scheme, along with an increased variety of individual organic fruit and vegetable lines.

The company, which has a strong ethical philosophy, has been operating in Hull for over nine years as a not-for-profit workers co-operative, delivering organic fresh produce and groceries to homes within a fifteen mile radius of the city, the majority of which are delivered by a converted milk float that is recharged by solar power.

The online service enables customers to browse, select and pay for their organic fruit and vegetables via the website www.arthursorganics.com

Director Graham Brooks told us: “We have seen an increased demand for our products recently, and feedback from our customers shows that in addition to paying online via debit and credit card, people also want an increased variety of organic produce to choose from. We have now introduced individual fruit and vegetable lines in addition to the mixed boxes, giving flexibility to customers. Our fruit and vegetable boxes vary week to week, although generally have the staple items such as potatoes, onions and carrots, or apples & bananas in the case of fruit.  Quite often customers ask to buy individual items in addition to their boxes – especially if there is a vegetable/fruit that is particularly good at that time of year.”

Recent research shows that the general public are becoming more conscious of ‘food miles’ and the demand for organic produce has surged. According to Mintel, the UK market for organic food will grow from £1.5bn in 2007 to £2.2bn in 2012. Fruit and vegetables are expected to remain the most popular category, worth around £500m in 2007 – a third of the total sales. Graham told us: We’ve had tremendous support from customers who want to support small scale local production, and some worry about the threats posed by industrial agriculture. Additionally as more and more people become health conscious they want to enjoy pure tasty food and want to eat it when it is fresh and natural. Also some of our customers don’t drive or don’t want to, so the home-delivery service appeals as there are no charges for it and we also offer a large range of general groceries which we will also be adding on to the on-line ordering service very soon. “

In addition to delivering organic fruit, vegetables and groceries, Arthur St Trading Company also manufactures a market leading, hand-made organic hummus that is available nationwide from independent wholefood outlets. The hummus is made in Hull and each week the staff freshly craft the product by hand in three flavours – Original, Sun Dried Tomato, and Kalamata Olive.
