Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS -

A FOOD and nu­tri­tion firm has an­nounced a 34 per cent growth for the first half of the year, reach­ing a six-month sales turnover of £10.7m, in com­par­i­son to £7.6m in 2016.

Di­rect Food In­gre­di­ents, based at Waters Green in Mac­cles­field and which also has an of­fice in Los Angeles, is con­tin­u­ing to drive sales with new and cur­rent cus­tomers and strength­en­ing its prod­uct ranges within cat­e­gories such as; food and bev­er­age, sports nu­tri­tion, an­i­mal and pet nu­tri­tion and ‘nu­traceu­ti­cals’.

Brigg Simp­son, com­mer­cial di­rec­tor, said: “The team has worked ex­cep­tion­ally well over the past six months, meet­ing the needs of cus­tomers new and old.

“We’ve had ex­cel­lent growth across all in­dus­tries we serve and our abil­ity to of­fer a wide range of prod­ucts, all of which are qual­ity as­sured by our­selves, has re­ally strength­ened our po­si­tion within the mar­ket.”

Brigg said that cus­tomer ser­vice also re­mains of the great­est im­por­tance for the busi­ness as the team prides it­self on the un­fal­ter­ing at­ten­tion and fo­cus it de­liv­ers to ev­ery com­pany they deal with, no mat­ter the size. The fig­ures in­di­cate that Di­rect Food In­gre­di­ents is set for an­other record-break­ing year and is on course to hit £23m by 31 December 2017. The busi­ness ex­ceeded £17.6m at year end in 2016.

Steve Loake, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, added: “The long-term in­vest­ments we’ve made in our qual­ity sys­tems and our fan­tas­tic staff has en­abled us to con­tinue to grow and be­come the UK’s largest pri­vately owned in­gre­di­ent dis­trib­u­tor.”
