About Us

Established in 1986

TOMSON (Buxton) Ltd is a family-owned and managed business established in 1986 by Malcolm and Deb Thompson, initially operating from a small retail unit, but today 38 years later TOMSON is a significant supplier of fresh produce, dairy, prepared fruit & vegetable and an extensive range of store cupboard essentials.

We now operate from a purpose-built facility offering a refrigerated delivery service six days a week to the Derbyshire and surrounding areas.


Over the years our key personnel have grown and today account for over 150 years of collective knowledge and experience in the fresh produce industry.


During our journey, we have built up strong and robust supplier relationships, with both big and small, ensuring value for money to our customers, while giving a fair return to the supplier.  Allowing us consistency of brand across our business with full traceability of which our customers have come to expect from a first-class source of supply.

​We pride ourselves on our strong family values and dedication to offering a personal, hands-on service, based on trust and respect, associated with a growing business that is financially stable and continually reinvests in the business.


Our portfolio of customers crosses all sections of the industry from 5-star hotels, restaurants, local authorities, as well as some retail establishments.
