I don't want to rain on your parade or anything like that but, in order to make any sort of a business out of importing food items from the UK to France for customers to collect or to  have their items delivered to their homes in France you will need to do it on a scale that makes it economic to you.

There are a few businesses doing this right now-most of them are UK based using existing commercial couriers to do their deliveries at very economic rates which you are unlikely to be able to compete with.

for example - http://www.missmysupermarket.com/

Their delivery costs etc-http://www.missmysupermarket.com/delivery-costs-and-transit-times.html

They are not the only company doing this sort of thing, and I use them regularly so I am using them as an example.
