Organic North Wholesalers is a co-operative formed by a group of northern organic businesses in the early 1990s and remains member owned. Despite their relatively low profile, they have supplied millions of £s worth of organic vegetables to box schemes for many years. They are the longest established and largest organic fruit and vegetable wholesaler in the North West. They are based at the Smithfield Wholesale Market in East Manchester, a hub connected by chilled overnight transport to all the horticultural areas of the UK. Their registered name is ‘Organic 2000 Limited’ but as their trading networks ‘Organic North Wholesalers’ describes their business much better.
