We're proud to announce that we have won new business from a revolutionary start up business that is forecast to disrupt traditional foodservice supply chains.
We have recently partnered with London based COLLECTIVfood for direct delivery of our award winning chicken to the capital’s restaurants.
COLLECTIVfood was established in 2017 by Jeremy Hibbert-Garibaldi to offer restaurants high quality ingredients at exceptional prices. Of the partnership, Jeremy said: “We came across Soanes Poultry when we were looking for caring, passionate quality producers who share our core values.
“We were ideally looking for a family farmer who produced chicken with known providence, so when learned that Soanes Poultry not only rear their own chicken, but they grow the cereals to feed them on their Yorkshire farms, we knew that they could satisfy the demand from London restaurants for tasty Red Tractor assured chicken at a competitive price.”
Our General Manager, Nigel Upson is thrilled to be supplying the innovative business: “Although we’ve been established for over 70 years, we are always open to new ideas and we think that COLLECTIVfood’s business model is the way forward for producers of our size.”
COLLECTIVfood, cited by The Grocer magazine as ‘leading the way in disrupting the UK’s £15b restaurant food supply’ in its December 2017 article, is a team of chefs, restaurateurs, food producers and innovators with a mission to improve an ‘old-fashioned, inefficient and opaque supply chain’ and offer restaurants high quality ingredients at exceptional prices.
