Keith Hepton, purchasing manager of Fairway Foodservice, said: “Our own-label range continues to go from strength to strength, and this is illustrated by the year-on-year growth we achieve.

“Our members, and more importantly their customers, have taken to our own-label ranges because they offer a way of producing high quality, great tasting food at a competitive price.

“We strive to ensure our members have access to the best possible products.”

Steve Jeavons, purchasing director, said: “In addition to the quality of the product, we also aim to make foodservice as simple as possible for our members.

“For example, the nutritional information of each product in our own-label range is fully accessible via our Erudus One app.

“We have a number of measures in place to ensure our own-label offering is quality maintained and as competitively priced as possible. We constantly benchmark the current range against competing lines, and re-tender where necessary to ensure products continue to be of the highest quality and remain competitively priced.”
