Who we are

We’re one of the UK’s foremost suppliers of cooked meats, sausages , black pudding and ready meals. We pride ourselves on delivering a flexible, efficient customer service that reflects our commitment and values to the business. We believe our success is down to our heritage and culture. We started out as a small family-owned business back in 1950, making quality bespoke products and treating our customers the way we liked to be treated ourselves.

Our story in pictures

We believe that a company is only as good as its people – and we have worked hard to build a team that embodies the spirit and values of our company. We strive to ensure that our people possess the right qualities that reflect both the backdrop and direction of the group as a whole. Without their commitment and dedication we would not be able to provide our customers with both products and service which are flexible and efficient and that, we believe, are second-to-none.

Quality Products

    We offer a wide range of quality cooked meats at competitive prices, allowing our customers to maximise their range of products and profits...

    When it comes to producing premium quality food products – we are passionate. While keeping one eye on tradition, we are focused on continuous innovation, driven by our dedication to developing and enhancing new products of distinction.

    Inspired by the ever-changing, expectant palate of the public, ever-mindful of the influence that industry trends have on competition, brainstorming trailblazing ideas, sourcing and selecting quality raw ingredients, producing small-scale trial quantities with stringent testing, through to managing the scale-up of commercially-viable product lines. more ...

Our large portfolio of success stories built from pure innovation and a deep understanding of customer needs – producing own-brand products for key wholesale and retail outlets - is something of which we are very proud. more ...

Mirfield man David Newsholme walks across country to raise cash for Kirkwood Hospice

Personal reasons spurred Huddersfield firm's managing director

David Newsholme went to great lengths to raise money for charity - walking the breadth of the country for Kirkwood Hospice.

David, 61, from Mirfield, completed the 168-mile Coast to Coast walk and has raised a massive £4,027 for the Dalton-based hospice. Starting from St. Bees in Cumbria, David and his son-in-law tackled extreme conditions and rugged terrain to arrive at Robin Hood’s Bay in a total of 12 days over a number of weekends.

"We were walking about 30 miles each weekend but did the final 50 miles over three days." said David. "We’ve had lots of blisters and aches and pains to contend with."
