Our Story

First established as ‘Food From Scotland Ltd’ in 1994, the aim was to provide practical help to enable independent food manufacturers in Scotland to develop their business by providing Sales and Marketing consultancy. As the company grew, niche manufacturing opportunities were identified and three bakery companies were bought in 2000; California Cake Company, Campbells 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 companies 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 Foodservice customers.

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 in staffing, systems and capabilities

In 2016 after continued growth in Local supply, Enterprise Foods opened its own distribution HUB in Rochdale, Manchester. This allowed for a more efficient route to market for Local suppliers. 2017 continued to bring about great growth and quickly Enterprise Foods outgrew the distribution HUB in Rochdale. Opening a new and bigger HUB in November 2017 allowed for continued growth and in 2018 the supplier base reached over 520.
