Record growth for food firm
A FOOD distributor is celebrating record growth over the past six months.
Direct Food Ingredients, based at Waters Green, Macclesfield, has seen a 55 per cent sales increase in comparison with the same trading period last year, with a turnover of £6.8m for the last six months.
The business, which imports, stores and distributes ingredients, was established by Steve Loake nearly 20 years ago.
He is now joined by co-directors Cath Hough and Brigg Simpson.
He said: “Over the past six years we have invested heavily in our infrastructure, with new software systems, employee training and development, and with a significantly expanded product portfolio.
“We have worked hard to become accredited by the most stringent of industry bodies.
“We are thrilled that our hard work has translated into the substantial business and client portfolio that we have today. The business is growing weekly, not just with new customers coming on board, but also with the size of orders from existing clients, and cross referrals to other divisions within the same group.”
