Confidential Sale


Advert ref: 3042TPBW

This well-established business with the reputation of being one of the best independent UK food wholesalers offers a great future potential for the new owner. The business sales have not been affected by covid, they have seen a significant increase in demand. With the uncertainty surrounding Brexit and imports, a local UK wholesaler and food manufacturer will undoubtedly be in an even stronger position through this.  

The business does not currently have a sales force, they are continuously approached by good food sales people wanting to work with them. The owner has had to refrain from this as the business would not currently be in a position to cope with the huge increase in sales that this would bring in  

The bakery is currently working at full capacity with demand for the cakes continually increasing and along with the biscuit manufacturing, has the potential to grow even further with the addition of another production line.

Our opinion:  

This business provides a great foundation and a huge opportunity for a new owner. The potential to expand and to grow sales is genuinely there. Given a sustained expansion program of increased storage production, picking and packing and adding in a sales force.

This business could become the major food wholesale distributor in the UK. The business has benefited from its flexible approach, strong service levels and relationships with customers and as such, have a very loyal and ever growing customer base.
