4 Degrees C
Based in London’s New Spitalfields Markets, 4 Degrees C sells a broad range of fresh fruits and vegetables – from prepared fruits, vegetables and salads to edible flowers – to a wide range of clients that covers contract catering, restaurants, event catering, government departments, schools, airways, chains and individuals.
Run by managing director Rebeccah Lawless, 4 Degrees C currently employs 90 staff and specialises in its relationship with British farmers, providing seasonal, UK-grown fruits and vegetables to clients across the country.
4 Degrees C was one of the first companies to implement Chefserve and is well able to attest to the benefits that the system has delivered for its operations in terms of substantial cost and manpower savings.
In business for 31 years, the company began life at the capital’s old Spitalfields Market, selling fresh herbs to restaurants and caterers, before a request for tomatoes from a client encouraged 4 Degrees C to move into other product areas.
Expansion inevitably meant extra paperwork and 4 Degrees C found that an increasing amount of time and staff budget costs were being consumed by the need to invoice manually, while the produce weighing and ticketing process was both time consuming and lacked accuracy, meaning the firm was failing to maximise potential profits.
