Meet The Team

Paul Bishop

Managing Director
Ive been in the fresh produce industry for 22 years, starting as delivery ticket checker. My vision for Side Salads was to create a unique innovative business to provide our customers and suppliers with an impeccable top class service, having friendly, dynamic staff with the professionalism and knowledge to cater for all needs.

Danny Brown

I have worked for the P&I Group for over 10 years, and in this time I have been allowed and encouraged to progress within the company. Starting from the bottom loading pallets, I have learnt many aspects of the day to day running of the company and have now progressed to working in accounts. My colleagues, directors and our customers make each day here different, and a pleasure to come to work. I strongly believe in the ethos of the company that best produce + best service = success, and I enjoy working as part of the Side Salads team to achieve this.

Nick Padley

As an employee of P&I Fruits Ltd for 7 years as a porter, I worked hard in making the step up to junior salesman. My opportunity was handed to me during P&I's takeover of Side Salads in April 2010. Now as part of Side salads and a senior salesman we have more than doubled Side Salads existing turnover, and we are looking ahead to capturing more of the New Covent Market Trade. We specialise in British Produce and are working closely with G's Fresh and other leading suppliers to provide our customers with First Class Produce and First Class service from start to finish.

Having been in Covent Garden from age 16 I have seen many things come and go but not a lot has changed in my 34 year career. Working at Side Salads is different from anything else I have done and I can see a new trend developing. Our new concept uses up to date technology to give our customers live growing conditions, pictures and other information from farms across the globe. Side Salads has given me a new drive and enthusiasm, and working here is great.
