With over 20 years’ experience making local work Enterprise Foods have grown to become a national supplier across multiple food and drink categories. We have a dedicated team who are passionate and committed to making local work and we believe that everyone should have access to great local products.
Our Story: (1995 – 2017)
First established as “Food From Scotland Ltd” in 1995 the aim was to provide practical help to enable independent food manufactures in Scotland to develop their business by providing sales and marketing consultancy.
As the company grew, niche manufacturing opportunities were identified and 3 bakery companies were bought in 2000; California Cake Company, Campbell’s Cake Company and Patisserie UK.
In 2001 “Food From Scotland” rebranded to become Enterprise Foods Ltd when the company’s mission changed to supply local products not just from Scotland but across the whole of the UK.
After rapid growth and capacity restrictions the three manufacturing company’s required major investment and as a result were sold in the November of 2005. At this time Local Bakery supply became the focus and with the achievement of large contracts with major retailers and food service customers Enterprise Foods saw huge growth.
In 2010 a change in direction was taken and the supply base expanded across other categories including dairy, ambient and hot food to go. Enterprise Foods grew over the next 5 years to become a company with a turnover of £60 million, 45 employees and 150 local suppliers across the UK.
This brought about major growth, not just in terms of supply base but also staffing, systems and capabilities.
In 2016 after continued growth in local supply, Enterprise Foods opened their own distribution HUB in Rochdale, Manchester. This allowed for a more efficient route to market for local suppliers. As of 2017 the supplier base reached 400+ and we deliver over 17,300 different lines to retail and food service customers all over the UK.
