We’re Closing ☹
Dear customers and friends of FruutBox,
We’ve got some sad news to share with you ☹
After two amazing years of delivering fruit and veg to you all, we’ve made the difficult decision to call time on FruutBox.
FruutBox is a family business; we’ve got two small children who are growing up way too fast for our liking, and the reality of starting and growing a business as a family is that both of us have always had to maintain our “day jobs” alongside running FruutBox and parenting. Sadly, it’s got to the point where something has to give. We want to give our children the time that they need and deserve, and as a family we need the secure income that our other jobs provide without having to regularly reinvest some of that in FruutBox's growth. FruutBox has been amazing and a huge success, but as it grows it is demanding more and more of our time and we just aren’t in a position to give any more. But we’ve made a plan so that you can continue to get the same fruit and veg delivered to your door…
Our Plan For You
Since we made the decision to stop FruutBox, we’ve been looking at ways that we can offer all of you continuity of service. We’ve been talking with local business Real Food Box, and they’ve set up matching set-boxes to ours so that any of our customers can easily switch across. They’ve also created a 20% discount code for FruutBox customers moving across to their service.
Real Food Box is run by the Warman family from their farm just outside Newquay. They grow vegetables, rear beef and lamb, and bake their own bread, all of which is available for delivery by Real Food Box or from their farm shop, with single-use plastic packaging minimized as much as possible. They cover most of our delivery postcodes with the exception of PL13-14, and PL32-34, but they’re looking at extending their delivery area so that those of you in those postcodes don’t miss out.
Our last delivery day will be Friday April 8th

Some Final Thank Yous
We'd like to say an enormous thank you to you, and all our amazing customers who have supported us - especially those who have been with us from the very start until now. We truly appreciate it. Many of our customers have become friends and we'll miss the weekly chats on the doorstep. We'd also like to thank our fantastic growers and suppliers, and of course our wonderful team members Ashley, Sharna and Kim, and Mat at Hailer Media, who've worked so hard and shared the same passion us for the business.
Our last deliveries will be next week so if you'd like to make one last order please do so this weekend.
Thank you again,
Katie & Jamie
