The Cortes business was established in 1952 and is based in the United Kingdom having a long history running over 3 generations. An entrepreneurial spirt, a long-term vision focused on ” the highest quality and flavour”, are the characteristics that define us and our brands “Cortes and Beehive “. These are distributed all over the UK, Ireland and other Europe markets.

Our experienced commercial team supply all areas of the markets, from the large Supermarket chains to the catering and wholesale markets.

Our great strengths are both in the total control in growing, packing and importing our tomato crops and the dedication and attention to our customers, many of whom we have served since the 60’s  and as a result have created a benchmark tomatoes business that continues to grow year after year,  always underlined by quality of produce to our customers.

Added to the backbone supplies of our Spanish tomatoes we are importers of a range of other salad produce from the Mainland Spain and the Canary Islands, principally all Lettuces, Peppers and cucumbers amongst other lines.
