About us

DDC Foods Ltd was founded in 1996, for the purpose of offering an alternative range of snacks and soft drinks to the consumer, compared to the mainstream readily available brands. The point of difference would be that the products were truly innovative, healthier as well as new and exciting. The company would embrace new ideas and concepts from entrepreneurs who share the same vision and aspirations by creating brands that change the way we snack and drink. In 2016, we introduced chilled and frozen products to our range.

Over the years, we have been instrumental in supporting such ideas and helping businesses showcase and distribute their products. This has been our company’s ethos and true to our vision we have not diversified from this.

We are a national wholesale and distribution company servicing over 97% of our customers with our own fleet of vehicles.

As well as ISO and NSF accreditations, the company enjoys a diverse customer base ranging from very high-profile accounts within the food service industry to independent and multiple retailers, wholesalers as well as exporting globally.

The company currently employs over 80 staff with an annual turnover of £18m.
