We offer our customers a free of charge consultancy-style service for all their catering product needs. If you’re starting a new food catering business and want advice from start to finish - from setting up your professional kitchen to displaying and serving your food, one of our highly experienced Area Managers can guide you through the process whilst offering advice on food health & safety.


Our customers have the option to add their own bespoke logo design on to takeaway packaging such as napkins, paper cups, takeaway paper bags and clear plastic glasses. By offering smaller minimum order quantities for independent businesses, we allow cafes, bars and restaurants to use the branding of their packaging to serve as an ideal way to advertise their food business.
