Record Year for North West Ingredients Firm


"Exciting plans are afoot for 2018 and beyond, and we feel confident that these will bring continued business expansion in the short term and for years to come."
Steve Loake



This represents a massive year on year increase of 22% on last year’s impressive sales of £17.6 million -  which until now was the firm’s most successful trading year in its 23 years of operation.

 

The leading ingredients specialist has continued to benefit from a number of key developments, including the further expansion of its highly successful US operation in California, the roll out of its now substantial own label brand Blue Diamond and the company’s on-going improvements in the areas of customer service which underpin all areas of operation and bolster the firm’s notable client retention and new client acquisition figures.   

 

Steve Loake, Managing Director at Direct Food Ingredients, said: “We are immensely proud to report another incredible year. Our expansion has continued both here in the UK and in the States, with our focus on customer service remaining central to everything we do. Our approach, as ever, is based on offering the best possible service throughout the customer journey, and as a result we continue to grow both existing business accounts and win new ones.   

 

“Exciting plans are afoot for 2018 and beyond, and we feel confident that these will bring continued business expansion in the short term and for years to come.”

 

Macclesfield-based Direct Food Ingredients is an established leader in the importation, storage and distribution of functional foods, nutritional and sports ingredients as well as vitamin and mineral premixes.
