When it comes to business, Riverford is different – it’s not just about the money. It is all about people (us, you, our customers) and food - especially our shared passion for growing and eating fresh, seasonal, organic food.

Riverford Organics Franchise Business opportunity farmThis is evident in how Riverford started. Tired of the way the big supermarkets were treating their smaller suppliers, Riverford’s founder, Guy Watson, set out to sell his ethically grown organic food to as many people as possible. The answer was to offer like-minded people the chance to join the company as franchisees.

Fast-forward 25 years, the company has a dedicated network of 70 franchisees delivering tasty, seasonal organic produce to around 50,000 homes each week. Riverford is now the UK’s leading home delivery vegbox scheme.

We are looking for individuals who share our love of ethical, organic food. To request our free franchise info pack, click here. 

The Riverford Approach

The business system is simple: we will look after the farming, hub logistics and brand marketing in the background. So we grow (or source), harvest and pack the produce for you, and transport them to your hub.

Riverford Organics Franchise Business opportunity farmYou would use your local knowledge and expertise to become the Riverford brand ambassador within your territory. You would then collect and deliver the produce to your customers.

It’s this harmonious balance between the macro and the micro, and a genuine passion for real food, good farming and ethical business that has enabled Riverford to flourish for nearly three decades.

Is it hard work?

Yes, but it is fun! You will get out of it what you put in. You really have to believe in what we do to grow the business and reap the best rewards.

Riverford Organics Franchise Business opportunity farmRiverford’s most successful franchisees have built their businesses from scratch to achieve a turnover of over £1million a year. Franchisees of these bigger businesses tend to take more of a managerial role, but they like to keep their hand in at the coalface (i.e. on delivery rounds) by covering for their drivers’ holidays.

Franchisees in smaller territories tend to work alone or as a couple - ‘owner-drivers’ - whilst they get their business off the ground. As the number of deliveries per week increase over time, they take on drivers or admin staff to help.
