Some of our wholesale customers include...

Manufacturers and Suppliers

We operate through four core activities:

  • the traditional agency/broker concept, where we represent brands to buyers nationwide
  • trading, whereby we source products to meet a specific caterer/wholesaler requirement
  • consolidation ie. we relieve the producer of all the non-manufacturing elements, such as distribution, stock control, credit control, invoicing etc, allowing them to focus purely on manufacturing
  • own brand – these can be made available to those manufacturers currently without a presence in the foodservice sector, thus giving them an entry into the marketplace.

A nationwide team

Our Business Development Managers represent you to ALL the key industry buyers (both wholesale and end-user). By “sharing” our sales force in this way, you can not only lower your own overheads but also be reassured you are gaining maximum penetration to the largest possible number of foodservice buyers in the UK.


This facility is much appreciated by the industry buyers. It gives them one point of contact for products from a number of factories, is a more efficient use of their time, offers less paperwork and only one ‘phone call each time they wish to make contact.

Your guarantee

  • instant access to a national sales team
  • maximum market penetration at reduced costs
  • proven track record in sales development
  • extensive foodservice industry expertise to support your business in other areas as well as sales

We are more than just your hired salesforce!

Don’t just take our word for it…

“We have been working with Central Foods since 2005, and they now handle 100% of our foodservice business dealing with both end-user caterers and frozen food wholesalers direct on our behalf. They manage both our Crepe Cuisine branded range as well as customer own-brand products leaving us to focus on our core business – manufacturing. Central Foods has established us as the no.1 pancake/crepe brand in the frozen delivered wholesale market, widening distribution of our range and increasing sales exponentially. Best of all, through judicious forecasting, they always successfully manage our stock through our peak period (Shrove Tuesday), ensuring 100% availability and very happy customers!"

FIONA WEBSTER, Managing Director, Crepe Cuisine Cornwall Ltd (UK)

“Having heard many positive things about Central Foods, we started working with them in 2015 and haven’t looked back! Our turnover has grown every year since, with increased distribution and sales. The operations team give us monthly stock forecasts enabling us to streamline production and costs, the sales team ensure we are fully involved in all customer dealings and the technical department does all the necessary paperwork for us. They have been instrumental in persuading us to change to vegan naan bread recipes, ensuring our Baked Earth range is relevant for the industry now and beyond. For a manufacturer, Central Foods really does make your life easier and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”

DANESH BUTT, Managing Director, Butt Foods Ltd (UK)

How do we deliver the goods?

In collaboration with one of the largest UK temperature controlled food distribution businesses, Reed Boardall, we distribute throughout the UK. We can either arrange collection of goods ex-works from the factory or manufacturers can make just one delivery direct to our central coldstore.
