Many generations of Proctors grocers

Serving Bicester for generations!

History of ACP Quality Produce

The Proctor name has been associated with the supply of fruit & veg to Bicester and Oxford for several generations. Many people will remember shopping in the Causeway or Priory Lane, or our vans and lorries bringing the freshest produce from Covent Garden or the Vale or Evesham.

As with many businesses over the last 20-odd years, there have been difficult trading times, including the recent pandemic. Where circumstances have remained in our control, we have always tried to provide the best service to our customers and that has continued despite all recent precautions.

Over the past few years we have supported both the Bicester Community Fridge project and Bicester Food Bank with fruit & veg, both serving local  needs and reducing food waste.

We hope the gallery below will bring back some fond memories!
