Total Food Purchasing

Our Mission:  To meet all your food requirements.

Caterers can look to us to source all their food requirements including fresh foods – fresh fruit and veg, fresh fish, milk and butcher meat. We negotiate prices with fresh food suppliers on behalf of our customers, using our bulk buying power to command better prices than might be available to customers on their own. Orders are routed through our telesales team – so one call covers everything. We handle all the hassles from progress chasing through to invoicing.
