About Us

Over the last 50 years our selection of products has continued to grow, and we now stock over 8,000 product lines, designed to suit every type of food business and budget. We believe in supporting local producers, and with so many fantastic suppliers on our doorstep, we go local whenever we can.

We’re also part of Fairway Foodservice, which not only brings national buying power but also gives us access to their brilliant own-brand range. All of Fairway’s Own Brand products are regularly benchmarked against the competition to ensure they’re as good as or better than the market leaders, meaning we can offer you great products at great prices.

Passionate About Fish

Believe it or not, Charles Saunders actually started out as a fishmonger on Bristol’s Baldwin Street, in the 1950s. And ever since, we’ve stayed true to our heritage, supplying some of the best fish in the South West. Our knowledgeable staff buy and sell frozen fish from around the world, ensuring the best quality at the most competitive prices. When it comes to seafood, the world is our oyster and we regularly source from as far away as Greece, Holland, France, and the Far East.

Reliable Service & Delivery

Our customer built depot in Bristol has everything we need, from fridges and cold stores to prep rooms and storage. There’s also enough room for all 35 of our multi-temperature vehicles, which allow us to deliver ambient, frozen and chilled products in one delivery – cheaper, faster, and better for the environment.
