Sainsbury’s has named K S Coles as its Agricultural Supplier of the Year. The Coles family, who grow and pack vegetables at Chelston House Farm, were attending the annual Sainsbury’s farm conference when their award was announced.
“We found out last Friday when we were at their farming conference and were totally gob smacked,” said director Paul Coles. “We are overwhelmed by this.
“We supply fresh garden peas, broad beans and swedes to Sainsbury’s who are one of our biggest customers.”
So are they having a right old knees-up among the swedes and beans?
“No celebration planned, just continue as normal and congratulate the team for the great job everyone has done.”
