The breadth of our range enables us to work with end user clients across the foodservice sector but in recent years we have demonstrated particular success with hotels, restaurants, gastro-pubs and contract caterers.
We also have strong relationships with foodservice wholesalers across the UK, ensuring that our product availability and distribution network is second to none and allows us to provide consistent nationwide coverage.
Due to continued growth we are seeking to attract a Key Accounts Manager to cover key regions and develop relationships with key distribution partners.
