New distributor launches with catalogue of Great Taste winners
A new fine food distributor has entered the market to supply independent retailers with a range picked exclusively from Great Taste award winning products.
Taste Distribution’s catalogue – which features a range of ambient lines that have won a one-, two- or three-star award – is strictly open to independents and the company will start making deliveries in the week commencing April 25.
The launch range includes chocolate from Åkesson’s, soft drinks from Breckland Orchard, Fairfields Farm Crisps, Hebridean Sea Salt, Hill Farm Oils, Saveur Du Maroc, Scarlett & Mustard and Asian ingredient supplier SeeWoo.
MD Alec Paterson told FFD he hoped the service would give smaller retailers an edge over the supermarkets.
“Our producers are some of the very best in the country,” he said. “25% of the products in stock are either three-star or Top 50 award winners in Great Taste, and in other cases they represent the best results in their category.
“Because of that, I’m confident in saying that we have the best salt, pepper, chocolate, oil, mayonnaise, soy sauce and crisps available in the country today.”
Taste Distribution is offering all FFD subscribers to a pre-launch sale – 10% off discount on orders until April 16.
