The company was formed in 1991 and incorporated in 1994. Though originally an importer into the UK , our sales are international now, with strength through Europe, Scandinavia and as far afield as Australia and China.

We supply not only food commodities but also bespoke ingredients, quality control paperwork, logistic expertise, chilled distribution and storage. We generally hold £12m of stock.
