About us:

Farmfoods is committed to providing opportunities all year round for service leavers and veterans from the Army, Navy and Royal Air Force to join one of our Distribution teams as Category CE drivers.

We recognise that many experienced drivers leave the forces each year and are looking to secure their first civilian job following their discharge date. We are committed to helping people apply for our roles by offering support through our partnership with Hire a Hero.

Farmfoods is a sixty-year-old family business. When you join us you will become a part of achieving our mission to deliver the simplest, best value, friendliest shops in town… different to anywhere else and much better.

We have 4 depots, Bristol, Cumbernauld, Warrington & Solihull that serve over 300 shops nationwide.

We are a family business, not a corporate monster. Our culture is built around our values of Hard Work, Trust, Respect and Positive Attitude and our belief that You Are In Control.

At every level in Farmfoods you are trusted and expected to take responsibility for yourself, your work and your colleagues. This is important because in everything we do we remember that it's our customers who pay our wages, and all our teams play a part in serving them.
