Fruit and veg from a Bedford family supplier is fit for a Queen and Prime Minister - and that’s now official.
AB Fruits in Murdock Road, Bedford has won a contract to supply fruit and vegetables to Chequers - the Prime Minister’s official country residence.
And AB’s produce was served to the Queen and Prince Philip when they dined at Chequers last month.
Bedford & Kempston MP Richard Fuller MP has paid a visit to the firm and congratulated them. He said: “I am thrilled that a successful local business has won the contract to supply David Cameron’s official residence and that the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh enjoyed their produce too.
“When I visited AB Fruits, I was very impressed with the operation run by Antonio Bosco and his three sons.
“The quality of their produce is excellent and I am delighted that a thriving Bedford business has won such a prestigious contract.”
Mr Bosco said: “We were over the moon to win the contract with Chequers and are very proud that that our local family-run company has the Prime Minister’s head chef as a customer.”
