Fairway Foodservice

Back in 1987 we joined Fairway Foodservice with the idea of extending our frozen food offering and growing the business. Being part of a buying group like Fairway gives us the purchasing power of a large national company while still allowing us to deliver local service.

Fairway Foodservice also offer a huge range of quality Own Brand products including Cooked Sliced Meats, Herbs, Traybakes and much more. All of Fairway’s Own Brand products are regularly benchmarked against the competition to ensure they’re as good as or better than the market leaders, meaning we can offer you great products at great prices.
