Hi all
 
We are in the process of setting up a delivery company of English foods to France. As seasoned campsite couriers ourselves we are considering the possibility of mainly delivering to campsite couriers. We are aiming at the bigger sites at the moment & are looking for feedback from couriers that would be interested in this service & to which sites/areas.
We look forward to hearing from you all
 
Thank you

Lol! Thank you. We are hoping to start with the bigger sites first around Northern France & Brittany areas etc & see how the interest goes, then hopefully deliver further afield. Any feedback on sites & areas will be greatly appreciated & of course products couriers want delivered!

Thank u! Well if we get enough interest you never know! We need couriers to tell us which sites down there, what products they would like, how often they would like a delivery etc. Fuel and tolls will cost more so the products would cost abit more, but if we can work out how much couriers are interested in deliveries then could be a big possibility!

I'll let you know when I get out there I guess. Les Sablons is one of the bigger sites in our region and Le Soleil too.. Sites with bigger teams anyway!

I would check out the prices in the local supermarkets, campsite shops and Irish shops (http://www.comptoir-irlandais.com/). Last summer I was in Brittany and UK & Irish products were widely available but at a high cost. I would also try and find out when tour operators pay days are and target deliveries around these dates as most of the time Couriers blitz their wages in a few days and are broke for the rest of the month. Would you be doing hot food like bacon sarnies too? Best of luck, it sounds like a great plan.

Thanks for info. We've taken most of that into account as we were couriers ourselves and no what pay days like! Plus the prices of English items! Hit food would depend on being able to store bacon etc, but I'm hoping to make a plan!

Baked beans and cadburys chocolate.I'm out of the seasons now but remember missing the food, Full English breakfast used to be the first thing on my list of things to do when I got home! Meats will be hard to stock if you haven't got a proper chiller.
