About

Fresha is widely known for our popular Exeter café, however we also provide contract catering, outside catering and conference rooms, through which we serve our high quality, freshly prepared foods, sourced from within the South West region. Through our catering contracts we meet the varied needs of business and industry, local government and the education sector. Our business and local government contracts include the management and operation of on-site staff cafés in addition to catering for conferences, meetings and events. In our education sector contracts, we provide thousands of school children across Devon with healthy, balanced school meals that exceed national school food standards. Fresha’s food vans and outside catering operations serve customers through event and outside catering and also our popular retail food vans that bring our fresh sandwiches and snacks to customers at their own workplace.

Across all of our operations Fresha recognises that we hold a position of responsibility and influence which we can use to do good things. Since our inception in 2003, we have been passionate about delivering high quality, fresh flavoursome food, in a sustainable and conscientious manner. We have developed these founding principles, to establish ourselves as THE responsible caterer .

Our numerous catering contracts benefit from the expertise and experience gained from successfully operating our Exeter, Sowton café since 2003. We use the best practices from our own café to manage our customers’ outsourced operations. Accordingly, the team, knowledge, skills, experience and supply chain established at our Exeter café headquarters informs and benefits the outsourced catering contracts that we successfully manage. At Fresha, all of our teams truly understand the importance of responsible catering and providing customers with freshly prepared, tasty foods that will benefit them nutritionally - whilst at all times delivering exceptional customer service. All Fresha menus are designed by our in-house chefs, ensuring they offer seasonal choices and meet our high standards for the preparation of fresh meals and sandwiches from raw ingredients. In this way our foods provide nutritional value to the customer.

Fresha has evolved over the years to grow from a single retail food delivery van taking lunches out to offices, to becoming one of Exeter’s leading catering companies, serving organisations and customers throughout Devon.
