Mr. Geoffrey Probyn

I am a regular customer of Approved Food and find them most helpful as well as being superb value for money. I shop carefully and by doing so have saved hundreds of pounds sterling by buying carefully through Approved Food. I think it a most sensible idea to be able to buy such products and thus cut down on the dreadful wastage. A most professional organisation and I have to say that deliveries are always on time and in fact in two years and 74 orders completed only one has been delivered out of specified time, and there was a very justifiable reason. A most impressive statistic well done DAN!!!!!

Very happy with all the products. They are exactly what they display. I would have given them a 5 star but was confused about a fee they charged me which didn't make sense. The postage should have been free because I was over the amount for free postage. The charge wasn't explained what it was for, so a little confusing.

Ordered on Monday, delivered on Wednesday. Amazing. Love receiving the delivery as it is always full of an eclectic mix of 'useful' items that I just cant say no to. But then there is always the bargains. Your deliveries always makes me happy. Thank you.

A brief history

After starting out as market traders, Dan Cluderay and his wife Nicola moved into wholesale and a number of retail outlets that supplied both the public and trade.

The business became Approved Food in the spring of 2009, and through strong customer service and a keen use of social media still offers the same values and connections with its customers as those early market stall days in Hull and Doncaster.
