Overview

George Anderson & Sons is a family run business which has been established for more than 40 years. Now in it’s Third Generation we pride ourselves on our ability to continually review our systems in the hope that we provide the best possible service. This has allowed us to successfully grow into one of Scotland's leading independant distributors of fresh produce, with an annual turnover of over £6m. 

Our modern offices and depot are based in Macmerry, just off the A1 and Edinburgh City Bypass. We find this to be an excellent logistical position to offer a fast and efficient delivery service to the major towns and cities of Scotland. A site more than double the size of our previous site in Musselburgh has been modified to comply with the recommendations of the British Retail Consortium (BRC Global Standard Food Storage and Distribution). The hugely increased warehouse and refrigerated areas give 
us the ability to control a strict stock rotation program to ensure that our customers are receiving the best quality and variety of produce on a daily basis. We have “A“ class BRC certified accreditation which allows us to supply the NHS and other Public Authorities. With more and more exciting fruit and vegetables appearing on our menu's the demand for the finest quality from around the world drives our buying team to source only the best produce. To meet the quality specification of our customers, George Anderson & Sons continues to source our produce only from reputable and accredited growers and suppliers. We are fortunate to be situated in an area which is home to some of the UK’s top growers and we continue to forge new links with local growers to reduce “Food Miles” and to offer fresher seasonal produce.
