Donations of epic proportions made to the Aspire Centre!

At the end of Medina’s Catering Exhibition that took place on 28th February, Helen from the Aspire Centre, Ryde, joined us to receive a hefty donation of a huge range of food and drink from our exhibitors for use in the local community.

The centre, which was previously a church, is now a community centre and venue which sees in excess of 1,000 people walk through the doors every week. It is a thriving hub of music and creative arts and is at the forefront of many projects focused around the needs of local people – including their Food For Free recycling project which sees perfectly wonderful food otherwise destined for landfill being made available to those that need it most.

Freak Spanish Weather Affects UK Fruit & Vegetable Supply

Spain supplies more than 50% of Europe’s vegetables at this time of year, so the recent heavy rains followed by the first snow has caused significant shortages.

The Daily Mail reports that the shortage began with aubergines and courgettes and has now spread to other vegetables, salad and, potentially, citrus fruit. Consumers can potentially expect shortages of iceberg lettuce, baby spinach, mixed leaves, rocket, lollo rossa, cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, lemons, and oranges.

We at Medina will do all we can under these circumstances to ensure orders are fulfilled. However, if you have any concerns regarding your supply, please feel free to contact our Produce Manager, Duncan or your Sales Representative on 01983 529840.

Over £170 raised for the Pop Up Soup Kitchen!

Instead of writing a ridiclous amount of Christmas cards last year, our staff are embraced the true spirit of Christmas by ditching them in favour of making a donation to The Pop Up Soup Kitchen instead.

Together with our customers who also kindly made a contribution to our donation pot, over £170 was raised which will help to raise vital funds for food, warmth and provisions for the homeless and less fortunate members of our community.

Well done everyone! Read more →
