Arthur David – Food with Service


Many people will know Arthur David the business, as it has operated in and around the South West for the past 50 plus years, but don’t know the story behind the name.

Arthur David is a Somerset man born & bred. He moved to Bristol in the 1950’s and joined his wife’s family in the fresh produce business. He quickly realised this was the life for him and branched out to start Arthur David & Co.

After initially operating from central Bristol, Arthur decided to go back to his rural roots and moved to the beautiful Chew Valley.

Phil, (Arthur’s oldest son) who has a true passion to see the business his father started, flourish. Phil wants to ensure that the business operates at the very highest standards, so things like BRC A grade accreditation, the very best team of people and a fleet of impressive chilled vehicles are pre-requisites.

Phil knows that great people deliver great service so has built a strong team to ensure Arthur David stays at the forefront of the industry. Jon Evans who is joint MD with Phil believes in their mantra of “Leave it with us” so much; he has it tattooed on his arm!

If you are looking for advice, innovation or just great service give us a call, and “LEAVE IT WITH US”.
