GW Price Ltd has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1901, when the business was founded by the current owners grandfather, George William Price.

The company today remains family owned, with quality and customer service still at the heart of the business values.

George William Price was born in Dudley, in the West Midlands in 1862. At nine years of age he moved to Eckington in Derbyshire to take up employment in the mines. This budding entrepreneur was not satisfied with colliery life however, and each Thursday he would take a train from Eckington to the Lincolnshire countryside. There, he would cycle around the farming community, purchasing fresh produce.
