Brook Street Foods and Turners Fine Foods have joined Landmark Wholesale.
Brook Street is based near Ipswich, and operates a delivered foodservice business in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. It has a turnover of about £10m.
Turners is an unlicensed delivered foodservice business based in Kent, supplying about 1,000 chefs and retailers in the South East. Turnover is expected to hit £16m this year.
The recruits mean Landmark Wholesale has secured nine new members this year. They also bolster Landmark’s rapidly growing reach into foodservice.
At the recent Landmark Wholesale agm, MD Martin Williams said that historically, more than 50% of Landmark’s membership had been made up of foodservice businesses, but in the past year this had rapidly grown and Landmark was now the third-largest operator in the industry.
