About Us

Founded in 1954 by John Place, over the years Place UK has built a solid reputation as one of Britain’s leading fruit growers and suppliers of IQF produce. With the acquisition of Phaseolus Ltd, we have expanded our IQF range to include beans and pulses. Our market position has been strengthened and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

Over 65 Years

Unlike other companies, we provide all of our services under one roof. As a manufacturer, retailer, and food service company with 60 years of experience, we can benefit all industries. We have something for every industry with this diverse range of offerings.


Place UK houses a huge range of products, whether that be frozen and soft fruits, pasta, rice or even pulses and grains. We have produce for every and any need. We also provide the perfect partner for your co-packing product needs, with our wide range of facilities.


Our exceptional workforce, consisting of up to 630 individuals internationally recognised for their quality, reliability and flexibility, makes Place UK what it is today. We welcome seasonal workers and provide them with on-site accommodations, a canteen, gym, sporting facilities, and a shop. If you would like to join our international farm camp, we would love to hear from you!


All of our fruit is guaranteed to be of the highest quality. We achieve this by operating highly mechanised fruit farms, some of which are among the biggest in England. Fruit harvesting takes place at our church farm in Tunstead, which welcomes people from far and wide to help.
