Down Wholesale

Quality is the difference

From the moment company founder Andrew Cairns opened his first fruit and veg shop in Donaghadee in 1968 the company mantra ‘quality is the difference’ was adopted. It is as fundamental to what we do today as it was in 1968.

The 1970’s saw the company move in to supplying foodservice and in 1983 Simon Cairns joined the family business.  In 1988 the Cairns family moved to a purpose built unit on Killaughey Road and have remained there since. In 2009 Down Wholesale became a Ltd company and have continued to enjoy growth and success since. We currently employ 25 people and run a fleet of 6 vans.

In March 2020 COVID-19 brought changes for everyone. In response to requests from members of the public we decided to offer a home delivery service. The response and feedback from customers was such that the decision to offer this service on a permanent basis was an easy one to make.

If you are looking for quality fruit and veg at competitive prices Down Wholesale will be happy to accommodate.
