Mrs Milligan and her part in food award
“Stephen suggested we should do something about it so we did.”
Established a year later, after creating new sample dishes in the kitchen of her home near Rye, the company started producing high quality frozen ready meals.
Stephen, 43, from Bonnington, had 18 years’ experience in the industry with Brake Brothers where he started as a cleaner and rose to become product development manager.
Now business is booming with 40 staff producing traditional meat and fish dishes and a variety of vegetarian meals.
Millifoods supplies big name companies like BHS and despite the recession they will soon be working 24 hours a day to meet demand.
The latest award was for Shelegh’s asparagus and Gruyere crown, one of Spike’s favourites.
