With more than 36 years’ experience in the food service sector, Blakemore Foodservice is a leading multi-temperature food distribution company that supplies the public sector, national account customers and independent caterers.
The business has a diverse range of nationwide customers that include public houses, restaurant chains, the leisure industry, schools and professional caterers amongst many.
In 2010 Blakemore Foodservice underwent a huge expansion programme following the launch of a second depot. The 80,000 sq ft site in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, was a clear statement of intent for the division to grow and expand its customer base across the north of the UK.
This has also allowed the division’s head office and 69,000 sq ft distribution depot in Walsall in the West Midlands to increasingly focus upon further expansion across the south. The business now distributes throughout the UK, from Scotland to the Isle of Wight.
Blakemore Foodservice employs more than 350 people across its two sites and is set to record a turnover of £170 million for the forthcoming year.
This success has been built upon the development of a partnership approach with customers via our team of friendly and knowledgeable staff.
In addition to a strong customer focus, Blakemore Foodservice has developed a great team ethos across the workplace and is committed to making a positive impact across the communities it serves.
This approach has led to the company picking up numerous external accolades including ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and Investors in People standards, Business in the Community Big Tick awards, accreditation from the Business Charter for Social Responsibility and Soil Association Catering Mark Supplier Scheme certification.
