Established in 1989, the business was originally set up to supply the needs of the local community. The business has grown significantly year on year and has now established a substantial revenue stream as a wholesaler. The business supplies meat, poultry and homemade pies to a growing database of circa sixty clients based in a twenty five mile radius of its rural base. Customers include hotels, pubs, rest homes, golf clubs and restaurants, schools, colleges and group distributers. The business continues to grow rapidly and currently turnover is increasing at a rate of approximately £20,000 per month.

Orders are taken by phone, fax and e mail with customers ordering weekly or daily. The operation runs three full time van delivery services six days a week.
