Price comparison, Thursday 21st November 2013
It appears that the delivered price of a £12 veg box from us is nearly half that of what it would cost from Tesco Direct
Depending on what is in the box, our produce can even costs less than Tesco conventional produce including 'Value' range. Much of the supermarket produce is also imported even when it is available and in season in the UK!
