An Inverness-based online grocery firm launched this year is seeking to improve its service by providing next-day deliveries.
Ness Valley is offering householders in Inverness-shire, Nairn-shire and much of Easter Ross a quick, easy and alternative way to satisfy online grocery shopping needs.
In tune with changes in consumer buying amid social-distancing and stay-at-home policies, a range of more than 700 products is available.
These include fresh fruit and vegetables, cheese and dairy, pantry essentials, bread and cakes, baking ingredients, chilled goods, soft drinks, wines, craft beer and Scottish spirits.
A majority of orders now include next-day delivery in modern, temperature-controlled vehicles.
Managing director Gary Williamson explained: “Over the last six months we have worked hard to refine our online ordering and technical systems to make it as convenient as possible for local householders to do their shopping locally.
“As we continue to face uncertain times, we hope to grow Ness Valley as a good value, high quality and user-friendly grocery shopping experience for local people.”
Ness Valley provides free delivery, subject to a modest minimum order value to Inverness, Dingwall, Strathpeffer, Evanton, Alness, Conon Bridge, Muir-of-Ord, Beauly, Nairn and most rural areas in between. The emphasis is on Scottish and local brands and produce.
Ness Valley is part of Williamson Foodservice, wholesale food and drink suppliers to the north of Scotland’s hospitality and catering sector, with a track record of more than 60 years.
Mr Williamson added: “Fresh produce and chilled goods with a specific shelf life need to be handled carefully and safely. Our facilities in Inverness guarantee goods reach customers in the best condition possible and we take real pride in both our attention to detail, friendliness and efficiency.”
